[FB] Social Feed Filter

Discussion in 'Bugs/Issues' started by Don Go Breaking My Heart, Mar 26, 2012.

  1. I am having a problem with the feeds, it may be widespread.

    I have only 500 people in my mob so it is not an issue of the top 1500 being shown.

    This is related to this update: http://forums.kanoapps.com/showthread.php?6367-Game-Stability-Fixes-TGIF-Edition.-2-24

    When I filter the social feed to "All Mobsters" I expect to get results from "All Mobsters" but when I filter by "Familia (Theirs)" I get results that aren't showing up in the "All Mobsters" category.

    What prompted this post was a request for help that was showing up in the Familia filter and not the All Mobsters filter, but it appeared on the All Mobsters filter after a minute or so. I think it was to allow me first crack at it, but I do not understand how the filters work.

    For any given group that you are filtering on you are only seeing a top slice of the most recently active users amongst that group. From these most recently active players you can then see all of their Social Feed posts. So if you are viewing "ALL" then it is only gonna show you posts from the most recently active of those 1500 players. I will assume that you are in less than 1500 Familias, so when viewing that group there are a lot less users to choose as candidates for active users.

    From the scenario you describe the player who has you in Their Familia got bubbled up in the activity rankings for All Mobsters and you were then able to see all of their posts amongst that large (1500) group of players.
  3. This should be changed, Smack.

    Considering the games require you to have 500+ real people to have as friends/clan in order to stand a chance, the feed should show all recent posts, and not just a %.

    Considering the fact that when I check my feed for bosses posted by all vikings, I see these posts still:


    Would it be possible to delete all feed posts older than 4-5 days and open up the rest of the % of our clans on our feed?
  4. As I said, I have only 505 people in my mob. The posts that I am able to single out are from 14 hours ago.

    When I filter Event: "Challenge Help" Group: "All Mobsters" the posts do not appear, but when I filter Event: "Challenge Help" Group: "Familia (Theirs)" I get these posts.

    They should not be bubbling since obviously there are less than 1500 posts from which to choose, even more so when I filter such an event from among the several events that only 500 people (or less) are posting. I am in 58 Familias.

    I only bring this to your attention because I would prefer to see when someone asks for help for a challenge and I do not have to go from feed to feed to get them all. That is why I rely on the "All Mobsters" feed.

    Further clarification, the "Event" filter has no bearing on which players feeds you are pulling from, it is only narrowing down the viewable data available from your selected "Group".

    I understand that you want the most recent data, who wouldn't. But please bear in mind that it is impossible for us to pull from hundreds of feeds in an efficient manner. To that end Facebook itself isn't pulling from hundreds of "friends" to build your wall and rather uses some algorithm to bubble up recent activity and other connections between to people.

    With our current system you will see the most recent activity, but if you have hundreds of extremely active players this can push content out of view so you will want to utilize your "Groups" to your advantage when you can. I apologize if this is not satisfactory. We will continue to revisit the Social Feed for improvements and we certainly aim to make the Social Feed as efficient and functional as possible.
  6. I understand what you mean now. I just scanned my old job helps to make sure that I didn't miss any (for the 10th time) and just like that, there is a job help that is active for me, from 19 hours ago. It wasn't there the first 9 times. It seems the player had just logged in and that caused it to become active. Also, they added me to their familia, so I'm up to 59.
