In this post, I wanted to show you one of the useful additions to the new Sphinn platform; networking. This feature lets you filter the articles on the site to submitters you trust and want to follow.
Underneath each submission there is an add button, as you see below. Click this to add this person to your network.
Then turn network filtering on, using the option at the top of the ‘Hot or Not’ or front page.
You then have your news filtered according to the submitters you want to follow. Less noise, more signal. You can also see this view of the site by default in the My Network tab. Here you can see who is in your network and who has placed you in their network (i.e. following you).
Here are 20 top-quality submitters from my network that you may want to follow. You can also do this from the link on their profiles.

If you’re submitting great material on Sphinn, please add a link to your profile in the comments below. I’m always on the look out for quality submitters to follow, especially outside the usual circles.
It may help you too. Getting yourself onto the network of regular Sphinn members raises your visibility within the platform. It shouldn’t guarantee votes but it will get your submissions read by more users.
