Daily Summary (1pm UTC)

Welcome to our AI-generated Daily Summary topic! (1:00 PM Edition) :slight_smile:

This is the topic where a daily summary of meta’s activity is collated by our good friend Bert, and posted here so everyone can get a rundown of some of the top discussions over the past 24 hours.

To account for our global audience, we have three editions (this one, Daily Summary (9pm UTC), and Daily Summary (5am UTC)), which fire at different times of the day so you can get one at a time most convenient to you. All of them cover the last 24 hours (respectively), so the main difference is when they land.

If you’d like to get a ping whenever a new one is posted just set this topic to Watching (and if you change your mind, change it back :slight_smile:).

Feedback is certainly welcome. We’ll be tweaking and refining the idea as we go, so all input is encouraged. We do have a separate topic for that so as to keep this one just for summaries. You can find that here - Daily Summary Feedback

Enjoy! :slight_smile:

:warning: Small caveat… AI (even GPT-4) does hallucinate, it is unavoidable. Don’t treat everything it says as truth, as there will likely be some lies mixed in. We’ll try to manually correct any if we spot them, but still… keep an eye out. :eyes:
