I love Byte, but I feel like as is, I’m having trouble seeing Bytes by creators I really love and engage the most - people I rebyte regularly, or comment on or comments on my own thing.
Often times, to get exposed to their stuff, I just wait until they engage with me, then I remember their account and go through their feed and a lot of times I’ll notice that there are 2-3 or more videos I missed.
Meanwhile, I’ll often see people who post or rebyte other bytes prolifically (which isn’t exactly bad, but also I feel like drowns out others). I really don’t like “for your consideration” posts, because I feel like most creators who are on the “top” of the feed aren’t really my type of content. It’s also really repetitive, I’ll scroll past user [XXXX] 100 times that’s given “for my consideration” and not really engage in their posts in any way and it still doens’t change these suggestions.
I feel like the community is why I like Byte and I understand the algo is really volatile right now, but also that I’m feeling a little more distant from the community than I did a week ago. (lol, such a long time)
This can also be a bias in which I was exposed to a lot of new users really quickly and had their entire library of stuff to look at and so the base of “quality” videos has naturally dwindled.
