In Fraidycat, follows are arranged by tag. The tags can be checked in real-time, daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly.

If people you are following have updated anything in the past couple of days, it will be shown in dark green colour. For updates which are a month old, the colour would be cyan.

There are different colours for updates which are much older. Fraidycat creator Kicks Condor said with the invention he wanted to move away from a cluttered and noisy feed.

"I don't want a giant noisy feed that's dominated by anyone who posts the most frequently or, worse, the most flagrantly," Condor said in a YouTube video.

According to The Verge, you can organize your Fraidycat lists and make it more convenient for you to switch between whom you are following. This can be done either based on the frequency or by the individual tags which you have given to each item. He said the idea behind Fraidycat is to create a sense of nostalgia for a younger, more innocent internet.
