Audience engagement on Odnoklassniki grew by 64%
Over the last year, audience engagement on news feed increased more than 1.5 times: the number of daily likes and other reactions grew by 64%.
The growth was due to facial recognition technology and smart news feed’s new algorithms based on machine learning which assess viral potential of content and take into account personal preferences of users.
With the new technologies, content spreads faster and gets more feedback within a short period of time.
Smart news feed takes into account whether friends of a user are interested in content which the user “likes” or “reacts” to. Those friends who do not “react” to the content will be shown less of it.
Another reason for the growth in engagement is tags in photos made with facial recognition technology. The service recognizes and offers to tag up to 2000 users a second at peak times: a photo can appear on news feeds of not only its author’s friends but also friends of a person who is tagged in it.
