@kozkozkoz @dancyfits Personally, I just want to be notified. I got plenty of tools to have conversations both with friends and strangers.

@davidesquimal which one do you use to talk with strangers? I know some, but not sure what are the favorites. As for Hooks you of course can mute all the comments and with a separate timeline for just notifications we cover both use cases...and still learning from feedbacks

This is pretty cool but how does Hooks prevent repeat interest groups? Does it automatically suggest people to join an existing one rather than creating a new one? How would I know which group is better? I always have trouble with processes like this because I want to just be in one but not potentially miss out on other great conversations. Congrats! @kozkozkoz

@davidsfeng thanks for asking, actually there are no better groups, you just subscribe to what you like, then only people who get the same notification (e.g. same news article) can talk even if they are in different topics/groups As for discovery we are adding a recommendations engines so we suggest you topics you might be interested in, we also have most popular topics ranks.

@kozkozkoz Ah that makes sense. I'll have to play with it to experience it I guess :)
