At an early stage of site development, the Arvod Editorial Board decided unanimously that we weren’t going to have social media links. We like democracy. But democracy is best, we feel, if it isn’t mediated by some giant corporation. We haven’t changed our mind about Facebook, Twitter, Google et al. But perhaps we were over hasty in discouraging interaction with these platforms altogether. The way the web has become, it’s hard to ignore them. So from today Arvod has introduced social media buttons below each post. We anticipate you know how these work. If you don’t, you won’t need to know, and we won’t explain them. We’ve also refined the login function and made some other minor tweaks.
