Tired of the same boring recommendations over and over again? We know we all spend an inordinate amount of time on the internet. Especially currently when we are all socially isolating! That's why we were excited to stumble across Mix.
Mix is a discovery platform that makes browsing the internet that much more fun and engaging. Previously know by another avatar, StumbleUpon, Mix is available as an app and a browser extension. We tried the website version and here's what we found.
First you log in to Mix with a social ID of your choice - I used my Gmail account. Then it asks you to pick topics you like: Animals, Architecture, Comedy, DIY etc. Once you've chosen a minimum of 5, you get a mini tutorial on how to share, create collections, and follow people. And voila! You're all set to dive into a curated selection of posts and articles based on what you like. You can choose actions for each post like add to collections and give feedback on whether the post matches your interests.
It was a pretty fun mix and an interesting way to approach browsing. Easy to use and convenient, it's also a great way to expand your learning and interests on the whole. Gotta say, this was a pretty fun way to deep dive into the internet in a thoughtful and mindful manner.
