Disable social features
The new social, 'share' and 'news' features distract from the articles - if I was to share something on Twitter, FB or otherwise, I would use other means.
We have recently disabled the news feature in article pages.
We still keep the “share” button for articles, though, since many users use it and it’s widely common in any modern app.
Yes, please! The "news" at the bottom of each article is particularly unbearable. I can understand why there might be good reason to leave the sharing stuff in for a while, in the name of attracting users, although I would like to see an option to turn it off. But WikiWand is intended to improve usability, user experience, and readability. Irrelevant slide shows with cringe-worthy captions accomplish the exact opposite of those things.
