Remove Boost This Stream an adjust front page and algorithm to feature more varied content
The paid boosting feature is unethical and engineers around the problem that the current algorithm serves content in a way that is both obfuscated from participants yet is clearly biased towards extremely large partnered streamers and/or divisive content.
Instead deliver content that appeals to individual viewers based on their viewing habits and adjust the front page and the algorithm:
- Partnered Streamers Recommended for you x3
- Affiliate Streamers Recommended for you x3
- New for you x6 (2 partner, 2 affiliate, 2 any) streams of varying size and varying content type
similarly for the search and category views of live channels allow additional filtering features based on stream size, time live so those who want to explore smaller streamers in a large category can do so without doomscrolling
