A Quick Note Regarding Politics and a Change to our Algorithm

Pingie is a website that uses mainly algorithms to post in our “Links” categories.  Pingie scours many social platforms to detect signals about what is a “trending story” to deliver you the “best of the internet”.

However, it is easy for politics to become a popular or viral story.  I have tweaked our algorithms to skew away from politics by adding quite a few disqualifier terms and topics because my readers have contacted me and use Pingie as a respite from political news.

In the future we will do our best to skew away from politics unless it is a story directly relating to technology and I apologize about the recent uptick in political stories.
