Improved Recommended Users
When I look through my "recommended for you" users I'll often find people with 20 or so artists in common, bit I'll click on their profile and they'll have 3.4K cymbals, most of which I don't care about. On the other hand I'll find users with only 5 artists in common, but they've made 6 posts. I'm more interested in following the second user since their posts will be more things I like more often.
What I want is a profile match percentage. For example, when I'm looking through "recommended for you" users, it will show me that 70% of a user's posts are artists I've posted. That way I can tell that they regularly post music I want to hear, rather than posting a song I actually like once a month.
This is a feature I know I would get a lot of use out of as it's a common issue for me. Love the app! Thanks!
It would also be helpful if there was a way to filter a user's profile so that the only visible posts are songs by artists that we have in common. When I have 20 artists in common with someone who has 3.8K posts, it would be great to be able to filter to see the posts which are most relevant to me.
I agree with Sean!
Again. Maybe you could filter recommended users by number of shared posts, or by genre of posts or artists? idk
Thanks Sean. We'll be trying to improve the recommended users feature soon. The recommendation algorithm takes up a lot of resources (we have to search through every user on the app and every cymbal posted). So there are some technical issues that prevent us from doing the idea you mentioned. That said, it's a great idea and we do want to come up with a solution for problem is feasible.
If your app can already detect which cymbals of mine match, can't you just devide that out of their total cymbals to get a percentage?
