It fascinates me to look at the psychological effects on the children that use my mobile apps after I adjust the algorithm to prioritize the least popular content.
Use of the search bar increased, and therefore the trends aggregator became more accurate, while making search also more accurate.
Categories were used more to find specific content, and automatic tagging of content increased (that's a good thing).
People leaving messages seemed to be more frustrated, but they soon accepted that the app was in a different order and stopped complaining.
More time was spent in-app, up to 20 minutes per day from 8 previously (on average).
I think that while this does cause frustration and anger for the users, they spend more time in-app and generate more data and revenue. Gonna keep the changes around.
Dream big. Work hard. Change the world. Give back to those in need.
