What is Yandex.Zen?

Zen is the Yandex personal recommendation service. It selects news articles, blog posts, and other publications that you may find interesting. The selection is based on your browsing history and stated preferences.

Recommendations start appearing in your browser once there's enough material to analyze and base selections on. Recommendations are displayed as cards under Tableau when you open a new tab. To see all your recommendations, scroll the feed with the pictures down.

Click on a recommendation in your feed to read it; the full text will open in a new tab.
