I’m not sure they know where they are going.
It looks to me that they are emphasizing pubs, but the infinite scrolling will, I think, hurt the big unfocused pubs. Good riddance to them, honestly.
Is curation really de-emphasized? You still see “Chosen for further distribution”; all that is lost is the tags that tell you where and how. That’s pretty minor. I found some of their choices on mine quite strange anyway.
Right now, it’s all a mess, especially with the truly horrid mobile app.
