Our YOUTUBE PODCAST ‘The SIMpS’ needed some grounding points before we were able to start recording and creating. When conducting background research for the topics we will be discussing, the game itself and even looking into the algorithms of twitter and tiktok and youtube. Tiktok’s main feature of their video creating app is their use of the ‘for you’ page.
An article by Gergana Mihaylova describes the for you page feature in terms of the algorithm. “The first is user interaction, or what a person likes, shares, follows, comments on, and posts. Second is video information, or specific sounds, hashtags, and captions, and finally device and account settings, such as the user’s location and language preference.” (Mihaylova, 2021).
I was also able to find a blog on ‘how to start a podcast on youtube’. YouTube is a platform in which billions of users browse a day. Youtube is a great platform because of its size to grow your digital footprint. This was really helpful to us as it gives an idea of the platform’s abilities to help us grow our content and is going to give us the most opportunities to grow.
Our visual podcast will be aimed at people within the Sims communities and mainly people who are able to relate to current and lifestyle topics such as university, working life, heath and fitness. Also reaching out to new players of The Sims and even people who have never played before.
