Can you clarify this point? What "non-interesting" news?

Agreed. However, my time and attention is limited, so I need to be
careful where I spend it. :) One way of prioritising is pursuing the
channels that get us the most exposure. At the moment, that's Twitter,
Hacker News, and Reddit. Everything else is secondary.

I agree. But producing the summaries takes time, which again, is my
only limited resource. :) I was looking through my Google+ feed today
(for the first time in several years) and I noticed that many people
share links without any description whatsoever.

Sure you do. You're on the list, you're on the marketing team. :)

Perhaps by writing these summaries and posting them to both Google+
and Facebook, and also taking over the management of both of these
channels, working to grow and nurture the communities there.
