The New Hot Posts Tab Is Heating Things Up!

The New Hot Posts Tab Is Heating Things Up!

While PolkaVerse’s Featured Posts tab is great for manually highlighting verified creators and high quality content, it is not scalable. Already we are reaching a point where there is simply too much content on Subsocial for any one person to curate, which is why the Hot Posts algorithm has been developed.

Similar to Reddit, the Hot Posts tab will provide increased visibility for posts that get lots of likes and engagement, enabling the best content to rise to the top.

The Hot Posts Algorithm

You can find the full details here, but in short:

  • Posts have an initial rating based on the amount of SUB the creator has locked
  • Ratings increase when posts get engagement and earn rewards
  • Posts lose 10% of their rating per day for the first week

With this algorithm, popular posts will rise to the top and get more eyeballs on them, allowing for even more rewards and engagement. It will be a time-limited positive feedback loop to reward great creators! As post ratings only decay for the first week, it will be possible to establish a leaderboard of “All-Time Top Posts” based on their ratings in the future.

Make sure to explore the All Posts tab to discover new creators, and like content that you enjoy to help it rise to the top of the Hot Posts. More eyes on those posts means more rewards for those creators, so do your part to support them in every way you can!
