But let’s be honest, they’re a sort of discovery method that is also built into other social platforms: Twitter lists,Twitter follow lists, Facebook lists, etc. Most now have AI using these lists to suggest who you ought to follow next. When will WordPress get that plugin?
My issue is that in a bigger social space, we need full pages for these sorts of data rather than the small sidebar widgets of yore.
This was the last serious conversation I remember seeing about the old Link Manager:
@photomatt I recall the jokes made about crusty blogrolls when we deprecated the links manager. Now, folks are exhuming it for use as their canonical OPML source to feed OPML subscriptions. https://t.co/Lt6cpWwkuj

So… should I “update” the link manager? On one hand, it has a 2-year warning. On the other, do we want it to show prominently in search?

So who besides Michael has a blogroll now? Mine’s at https://boffosocko.com/about/following/. Where’s yours?!
