As a reader, you can subscribe to any categories you want, with no limits.  Add or remove categories as wanted.  By default, we populate your news feed with some top trending stories.  

If you are in the United States, you can subscribe to U.S. news but can still subscribe to news from African sources.  Some testers responded that the ability to select one main category and a completely different sub-region, this is in place because you are not limited to subscribing to a single geographic area.

Our reader category format is new.  If you feel we can improve on it, please let us know.
