Vine has launched a new channel that’s designed to aid in the discovery of videos and users the company thinks you might like. The service’s algorithm will provide you with videos it thinks match your interests, akin to a Suggested User List.
“Our home feeds on Vine are filled with posts from the accounts we follow across comedy, music, sports, and more,” Luis Tandalla, an API engineer at the company, wrote. “The world of entertainment on Vine extends far beyond our home feeds. There’s a ton of great content created by accounts you may not follow, and we’re bringing those posts to you.”
When using Vine, you’ll see a new section appear at the top of the screen called “For You.” This is the new channel and is available for iOS right now, with an Android version coming soon.
Although the company didn’t disclose the algorithm it uses to specify how the channel was personalized, it’s probably taking into account the people you follow, Vines you’ve watched or favorited, and more.
