Countdown to Sunlit 3.0: discovery

Sunlit 3.0 will ship in 3 days, on Tuesday. Today I want to highlight another new feature: the redesigned Discover browsing interface.

Both Sunlit and Micro.blog use Discover to help you find people to follow. Because Sunlit is all about photos, Sunlit takes the usual Discover sections from Micro.blog, but shows only the photos from each section instead of all post types.

For example, tapping on ๐Ÿ“š at the top of Discover will show microblog posts that have used the books emoji along with a photo, which will often be a book cover or other photo of the book. Tapping on ๐Ÿงถ will usually show peopleโ€™s knitting or crochet projects. Tapping on โ˜•๏ธ will show coffee-related photos. Tapping on ๐Ÿž will show baking.

Itโ€™s a great way to discover people to follow even if they havenโ€™t posted a recent photo that you might see in the main ๐Ÿ“ท photos section.

Check back tomorrow for another blog post in this series as we look forward to the Sunlit 3.0 launch. And thanks to everyone who tested the Sunlit beta!
