So I noticed a lot of apps, as they are changing their formats, have had things like # of views, date posted, # of likes, disappear. Some apps are probably just working through technical glitches, while others may have embraced this as a permanent change.
Feedback (Such as ‘likes’) is an important part of my process as a creator. Sometimes feedback is hard to receive, but it’s a valuable thing that empowers me to grow and push myself as a creator.
Likewise, I noticed some looping video apps have gotten rid of being able to see when a video was posted. While some may not think this matters, (and I get that in some sense it doesn’t; as a creator it’s my job to be aware of what I’m posting and be putting out consistent, quality content, not focusing on when other people posted their videos), but I still can see some beneficial value in being aware of videos were posted.
For example, as a creator some times its important to pay attention to trends. If I see a video and it has a ton of feedback, or no’ feedback, it may be beneficial for me to know when that particular video was posted. Was this a video from 6 months ago? Was it an hour ago? It could make a difference in what I put out as a creator.
In summary, I would love to hear that byte is still showing # of views, # of likes, # of “revines” if that exists in some way in byte, and also the original time stamp of when the video was posted. Thanks!
