Is the trending page getting back it's glory?

in #actifit2 years ago (edited)

I'm never at home on Friday nights, there is always a fantastic worship service at my church on Friday and I honestly love to sing. It makes me feel so comfortable. So today after my church service, I decided to sit down in front of my computer before taking a rest. I spent a couple of hours reading content from the steemit trending page and it seems the page is getting back the glory. Apparently, there is a lot of genuine and valuable content from steemians and this covers most of the interesting topics. To be honest, manual curation is giving life to steem and I hope it increases the retention levels on Steem. I would like to applaud the hardworking steemians that are making this place a cool investment ground.

Kindly let me know your thoughts on the trending page

Yesterday I achieved a 5k activity from walking from work to home and also running around the home compound with my neighbours' son.

Daily Activity, running, Walking



I guess the trending page had always been for people who have certain connections with those who have enough stream power. Mg opinion though, the trending page is always filled with the same account or their alternate accounts.

Yeah, you're right @oluwatobiloba, however, with the manual curation that is going on after HF21/22 these accounts are now making legitimate content that can attract investors and besides, it is a lot easier now for someone with no connections to get to the trending page. Apparently, you can have a look at it like daily and you will discern the major changes. Thank you for passing by my blog, I highly appreciate you. I have rewarded you with sports tkens.

Yes, now steemit trending page looks more clean. You can enjoy reading posts that add value. I love it. SportsTalkSocial published community guidelines yesterday. The way this tribe is moving forward, that's impressive!

Oooh, tbh @rezoanulvibes, I love sports talk social and the team is doing everything possible to make the platform work. I have not yet had a glance on the community guidelines blog :D let me get there. Thanks for siding with me on the trending page jazz and by the way, thanks as well for your support on the sports talk platform. I sorely appreciate you.

There’s only one thing that does not make sense here:

What is the point of recognizing “value” on post if its upvotes we’re mostly purchased?

Start to pay attention and you will easily see what I’m talking about.
The REAL economy behind steemit is behind these shady stuff..... sad to say or accept , but that’s what’s moving the economy here. Big whales do not just buy and hold, they sell their votes and also earn on curation. It’s a money making machine if you have more than 10k to invest here. But that’s all.

Creating fake reputation and selling it.
Truth must be said.
