Trying her out. Like the clean look, so far. One concern I have, though, is reading that Cake is designed primarily for people to follow topics, not people. That's great, in theory, but I'm not sure I understand why both models aren't supported. I read the NYTimes because I trust it - and know it. I ready your (Robert's) comments because I know you, and trust your opinion. Seems like it's asking a lot of me to read content from complete strangers without some association with trusted or known sources - be them people or entities (papers, organizations, etc.).
So, if I like drone photography (which I do) and I start reading and following content in that area - how do I filter out the content from people that I don't like or aren't delivering what I consider to be credible content?
People certainly complain that Facebook sort of creates a siloed content environment where one tends to follow people who have similar likes, political beliefs, etc. and see those same filters applied to news feeds - a sort of content and idea homogenization. But, that's not always a bad thing.
So, I'll give this a ride and peek around a bit.
