Flipboard, a social magazine app, has added a Bluesky-specific feed. Bluesky is a decentralized social network. The “Tech by Flipboard” feed is supposedly hand-picked by the app’s recommendation algorithm.
Flipboard Enhances Bluesky’s User Experince
Bluesky released a new feature last month that lets users make their own feeds using their own algorithms. To easily navigate the vast amount of content and profiles available on the social network, users can subscribe to a variety of feeds. Unlike other social networks, Bluesky was designed to not rely on a central recommendation algorithm found in a single feed.
Flipboard said “For our Tech feed, our AI topic extraction algorithms don’t just look at the raw text being posted to Bluesky. Instead, they dig into shared articles, categorize the content inside them, and confirm that the article meets Flipboard’s quality standards. This delivers streams of stories that are both topical and high quality.”.
Flipboard announced that it will continue to enhance its approach to Bluesky content, as part of its efforts to enhance topical feeds. The Business and the Entertainment Topic Feeds are the next ones to be developed. They expect you to use these feeds to discover interesting new individuals and stuff on Bluesky.
