BeBee 'Honeycomb' feed for posts with high engagement
2 ideas inspired by Ali Anani's post here - firstly, this Hive as a way to communicate ideas for new features or make requests for improvements.
The second is an idea for a new 'feed' called Honeycomb, which pulls the highest engaged posts from all Hives you are part of (so each day, the top posts from each Hive appear in your personal Honeycomb feed). You also have a button/option to view the top engaged posts from all Hives on beBee so you can curate your favourites from the main Hive.
There would need to be an algorithm which selects which Honey posts appear in the Honeycomb, one suggestion would be that it is based on number of comments, not views/relevance. This algorithm would not count author replies to comments (they would still be pulled into and seen in the feed) - this would discourage authors from 'bloating' comments just to get in the Honeycomb feed.
This should be easy/quick to test, implement and get user feedback on - over time more advanced algorithms could be used to filter results but each improvement of the algorithm should be publicly tested and checked with users to ensure it is fair and useful (otherwise people will be put off BeBee, like over on LinkedIn!).
This is just an idea, please share and leave comments that could help make the idea more useful to all Bees!
