Every day, the Kinja team works to iterate on the platform Fusion Media Group uses for its network of media sites. As part of our job on the data team, we provide product managers and developers with information to help them create new features that improve users’ experiences, enhance editorial’s storytelling tools…
Last year we announced all Fusion Media Group sites would soon be publishing on Kinja. The migration process started with The Root in January, Splinter in March, and our most recent migration being The A.V. Club less than two months ago. Now we’re back to report that we’ve added another site to our platform. Today…
A big hello from the team here at Kinja. We have a few updates to share and a few introductions to make.
The tech team is introducing some changes in the editor to simplify insets. By simplifying this workflow, we can lay a better development foundation to build upon as well as make the experience of using insets more straightforward.
The Tech team is releasing an updated Blog Settings feature, which will allow users to manage all of their blogs and their respective settings in one place.
