Getting the most out of Discover feature

Discover feature shows you automated content recommendation from curated sources around the web based on links you save and your stated interests.

Make sure to enter descriptive interests in your profile. For example "python performance" is better than "python".

The recommendation AI also uses saved links as a seed. It will consider up to 100 most recently saved links so for best results you want to have at least 100 links saved. The more links you save, the better recommendations you will get.

If you dislike a recommendation you can choose to 'mute' it by clicking the mute button. This will suppress recommendations for similar topics.
