helps you find interesting projects that people you follow might share, but what about finding something that isn’t shared from your followers? We have had a search option since the beginning of Clowdy but that requires you to have a specific purpose in mind, like “I want to find a video by Eben Mccue“. On Clowdy we want an element of serendipity when you have a vague idea of what you want. This is where Hashtags rule.
Now the way an artist describes their projects will be improved with Hashtags. The best practice will be to use descriptive keywords on perhaps the genre of the project, the location it was recorded, the technique used on the project, or just something for fun. Any hashtags will aid discovery.
We will then be showing the most popular tags to users on their Home, in suggestion e-mails and from suggestions in searches. We will be gradually rolling out these Hashtag features over the next two weeks. Finding new projects will never have been so fun!
