TOTAL REVAMP OF TRENDING LIST
Here is another of major change in app working after l/q implementation. :sweat:
Currently it was being seen that most of the uploads only go in few categories & thus other categories were losing steam. So, this time our aim is to try to bring back the glory of all categories and give a more balanced look in the app.
Straight to the point, we have done following things/steps regarding this:
- Server now records how much time a category opens.
- Low opened categories gets more importance & vice versa in the following way:
- While generating trending list (no affect anywhere else), likes of a message will be reduced proportionately to how often it's category was opened.
Example: In our testing we found that currently Status Update category is opened 30% times of all categories opened. Jokes / Shayari come second at 7%. And categories like Smile etc open 0-1% times. So, likes of a message coming from Status Update category will be divided by 30. Jokes by 7, & Smile by nothing i.e. all likes will be counted.
And then, Currently Trending list will be generated based on sorting by this. This way we expect less used categories to have a chance as well!
You can check the divide factor for each category by long pressing the category icon. This is generated live & is updates every hour. It now also shows which category likes are not counted at all.
As always, nothing is final here. This is just our 1st attempt to bring more 'category' balance into app. Calculations will be adjusted as & when required.
Hope it was not another complex thing to understand (well, it was!). Keep feedbacking us!
See you all! Lots of love!
