On the v2 app, there will probably/most likely be a ‘discover’ section, where random posts relating to the user will be featured. However this idea takes it a bit more beyond that. The idea is that between a set number of posts, an upcoming/rising artist/creator will be featured on the home page. Let me go more in-depth.
If a user is scrolling down their home page on v2, between a certain amount of posts, someone relating to what that user watches will pop up. One video from them will pop up, and the user will have the opportunity to click on that artist’s profile and look at more of their content.
If I’m a user, who has been watching a bunch of sports and dance v2 videos, between every 35 posts, a new artist that uploads sports/dance videos will show up on my homepage. Their post will be shown like every other post, however it will say ‘Recommended artist’. It also won’t be the same user, for example, the first 35 posts will be one of 'Sportsguy556’s videos. In between the next 35 posts one of 'Dancergirl00’s will be featured, etc…
I chose 30-35 posts because these videos are only 6 seconds long, meaning it won’t take too long to get past 30 posts, resulting in a non-spammy recommendation system.
This isn’t a feature that is necessary so I wouldn’t say it should be put over some other things the app needs, however it would be a cool feature for discovering more people.
