Emoji Credibility Indicators: Meet The New Icons

We've enhanced our indicators to accurately reflect the diverse content submitted to HackerNoon. Now, our categories include an expanded range of Context and Disclaimer indicators like Original Reporting, Code License, Vested Interest, AI-Assisted, etc., alongside Content Types indicators such as News, Guide, Product Launch, Fiction, Press Release, Video, etc. Plus, we've introduced some fun new emojis to complement them.
