Thoughts aren’t shown in the same order to everyone, but they aren’t shown at random either.
Randomness isn’t biased, but it doesn’t quite guarantee that thoughts will be shown equally. Instead, we’ve developed a special algorithm for the Star step, which is the secret sauce to ensure that all thoughts are treated fairly and equally, and given the same exposure.
Our platform is built on the philosophy that every voice matters in a conversation, especially on a topic that affects people both personally and directly. This means that we do our very best to ensure that everyone’s thoughts are heard equally and treated with the same amount of respect, regardless of which thoughts might be “trending”, or which thoughts were shared first, or which thoughts were shared most recently.
