Gary mentioned on Monday that some companies experiment with user interactions by firing up experimental apps. They drive paid traffic to the apps to calculate the user interaction’s success. After the user interaction is well tested, they integrate it into their primary product.
I set up a series of IFTTT recipes today. They watch Twitter and Reddit for tags graffiti and street art hash tags. When they find the tag, they retweet the image through twitter. I’m getting a lot of engagement from strangers through passively running these scripts.
The quality of retweeted content is low. I could improve this system by filtering what I actually repost. I could go as far as require manual selection of posts. I am finding value in identifying the kind of people who engage with the tags I am interested in.
