What’s in a Bluesky Starter Pack?

What’s in a Bluesky Starter Pack?

A Bluesky starter pack can include the following:

  • Custom feeds: On Bluesky, you can set any algorithm or topic as your home timeline.
  • Recommended follows: Add your favorite accounts and encourage new users to follow them.

At the time of writing:

  • Starter packs do not show up in search, so you will need to have someone send you the link or see the embed preview within the Bluesky app.
  • Starter packs can recommend up to 50 people and up to 3 custom feeds. New users will automatically have Following and Discover pinned.

You can count on us! The Open {re}Source team is excited to introduce our very own Bluesky starter pack focused on open source! 🚀

We followed the tutorial provided by Bluesky in their blog post, but even without the tutorial, it is quite easy and intuitive to create a starter pack from the interface.

Below is the link to our open source Bluesky starter pack:
