When you search for usernames on the apps - it gives you the specific thing you’ve searched for + very very similar usernames. But not usernames part of the same category.
Example : searching memes - results in my account (memeshop) to NOT appear anywhere even tho my followers/view count is higher than absolutely every single person under the “memes” usernames, with most accounts not having a single video publish.
This MAJOR fault in the search engine does not exist in any other major social media network.
This rant is not about me in particular. Is about ALL content creators.
You want to follow your favourite celebrity? Well good luck, if you don’t know their EXACT byte username, no chance to find them.
This “exact username” feature will create a highly expensive black market economy where an specific username will cost a lot more than on any other social platform.
This feature will BADLY injure every single creator on the app in the long term. With audiences that will never be able to follow their creator unless they know their Exact username, which is not the case for any celebrity/creator.
