I’ve been seeing some discussion lately about the idea of a “similar content” button which you could push to find similar content to a video you’re watching, and find smaller artists along the way. But what if we took this a step further?
What if, for each category, there could be a “Shuffle Mode” button which would put you into a Pandora-like neverending stream of videos? You could like and dislike videos, and V2 would update the feed based on which tags and artists you like the most. It’s probably best that it only updates this in the Shuffle mode to avoid a possible “echo chamber” though?
I’ve stumbled upon so many smaller, awesome artists from Pandora. I love that we all seem to agree that everyone should be on equal footing on V2, and a feature like Shuffle mode could level the playing field by suggesting smaller, newer creators. If a video is bad, it’s only 7 seconds out of your life which you can avoid with a simple dislike button.
What do yall think?
