Before anyone starts to tell me why the devs changed the algorithm, let me say- I know why they did it, and I understand the decision.
However, as a smaller creator, I feel like it has hurt me. I’m gonna be honest here, most of my loops come from rebytes I get from larger accounts. But, since the new update came out, my viewership and likes have plummeted. I know it’s not because my bytes haven’t been as enjoyable, because I have approximately the same loop to like ratio. Because of the new update, I’ve been relying entirely on the chance that I get featured in some way to get eyes on my bytes.
It’s a bit discouraging going from at least a hundred likes on all but two bytes, to now getting maybe 60 if I’m lucky.
EDIT: this is all my opinion and observation of numbers. I’m not trying to say I’m the only person going through this, nor am I trying to say that things should be changed. What’s done is done. I think I came off a little whiney in this post. I want to know if anyone else has experienced a drop in views, if the change has helped them, ect.
