Unlike metafandom, which had been criticized for causing wank by linking to otherwise obscure meta posts, metanews requested permission before linking to a post. Many of its links were to meta and non-fannish articles on other platforms. It never achieved the popularity of metafandom, possibly due to the fact that livejournal fandom was past its prime. However, anons at fail_fandomanon felt that on average the links collected by metanews were less interesting than metafandom.
