Using Discourse as a social media platform

Somebody recently created a topic that I felt would be worth sharing here due to its relevancy towards this whole “social media” discussion.

Also, despite what I originally thought, there actually is a way to allow for users to interact with topics directly from the main feed. Despite being a major breakthrough, this companion #plugin somehow went under my radar! With some minor modifications, it could fit my needs perfectly.

So far, this has to be my most favorite example!
