  • Home - Recent posts by the people you follow.
  • New - Posts sorted by most recent.
  • Hot - Popular posts at the moment.
  • Trending - Highest pending rewards.

Anatomy of the “Story”

Each blog post (or “story”) can be previewed via a kind of “thumbnail” format. This allows you to see and scroll through dozens of authors via any of the main tabs, all at once. Each Steemit post contains a series of symbols. Here is a key or legend of those symbols to help get you acquainted...
