Ultimately, Substack provides writers with one of the best sets of digital publishing tools. The new Substack recommendation feature is a great addition to these tools! I can imagine all sorts of of positive interactions between Substack publications, that would have never otherwise occurred.
It is definitely a good move by the platform to increase the visibility of all publications. As you might imagine, if a large publication were to even briefly feature a smaller publication as its Substack recommendation, this could be a game changer for the smaller publication, by generating a surge of traffic and increased visibility.
