MORE feature ideas? Yes please!

I saw some interesting ideas mentioned here, but here are some things i’d consider pretty cool/useful:

  • some metric other than ‘follow count’ or ‘views’ to measure a channel’s popularity.

People may be really popular number-wise, but their content may not be what’s currently trending. Some kind of a ‘heat’ score profile-wise that incorporates something like amount of engagement, most views in as least time, most mentions, and other parameters to measure popularity. Then we could have a way to filter all the ‘hottest’ current profiles even if their numbers aren’t the biggest. Also maybe could take some of the weight off of just caring about follower count?

  • Some way to let underperforming profiles with great content be found - maybe a ‘newcomers’ section where underrated profiles are hand selected?

  • the ability to post content that has already been filmed. I’d love to be able to post content i already have on my phone that fits the time and image size constraints.

This is just because I’ve made a bunch of short funny vids I haven’t posted anywhere. What do you think about this though, would it be good or do we want just fresh new content? Because then people would just repost old v*nes?

  • the ability to zoom in while recording with a finger movement while recording, like in other apps.

I love being able to zoom in as close as possible to my face or other non-suspecting victims. This is likely already going to be a thing i’m hoping.

  • if there is no way to upload pre-recorded content, a feature to collaborate with others.

Maybe these ideas have already been mentioned? Anyways those are what I’ve been thinking about let me know what you think!

Love the alternative popularity measurements! Interesting to think about.


#5

honestly yeah I guess you’re right… although it wouldn’t have to be the exact same tiktok thing

ahh okay good to know!


#8

nah the thing is that duets in any way cause so many problems
