Popular results for Browse

Tue Jan 24, 2012, 5:00 PM by Heidi:iconheidi:


:bulletblue:  Something for Everyone


The deviantART community is incredibly deep and diverse.  Every day, amazing art is produced that appeals to all tastes.  Our goal in sharing and exposing the deviations in deviantART's Popular section is to showcase this depth and diversity as convincingly and fairly as we can.


:bulletblue:  Fair Exposure


DeviantART's algorithm for Popular browse results is known as Fair Exposure.  The goal is to maximize the display of the most popular deviations in a variety of topics (styles/genres/art forms).  Fair Exposure increases the probability that someone will see something that they personally like in Popular results.  In short, with Fair Exposure, the community is exposed to a varied cross-section of deviantART.  It uses an algorithm that is "fair" in nature -- meaning not biased toward any topic, yet still based on popularity.


:bulletblue:  Why is Fair Exposure needed?


Ranking deviations based on raw popularity alone is something that deviantART hasn't done since 2008.  While using raw numbers has some benefits, it also has many problems.  One major issue is that it inherently favors the already popular -- making that which is popular more likely to be seen, gaining even more popularity.  

Different styles and types of art appeal to different deviants, and those deviants use the Favourites system in different ways.  For example, fan art enthusiasts are more likely to Favourite a deviation based on subject, whereas, fine art photography lovers are more likely to Favourite based on technique.  Thus, comparing the number of Favourites on one type of a deviation to another is like comparing apples to oranges.  

Fair Exposure's task is to strike a balance between showcasing depth (i.e. deviations that are popular with many individual deviants) and breadth (i.e. deviations that are popular with a wide variety of deviantART sub-communities).  We do this with an algorithm, the components of which are adjusted from time to time to produce an inherently fair outcome in terms of art that would be of interest to the broadest spectrum of deviants.


:bulletblue:  Fair Exposure 1.0, 2.0, and 2.1


Version 1.0 of Fair Exposure was launched in February 2008, and the next set of updates (2.0) came in December 2011.  Fair Exposure 1.0's computation became slower and slower with every deviation added to deviantART.  While it executed in a reasonable amount of time in 2008, it was no longer updating fast enough for the front page.  However, Fair Exposure 2.0's computation was structured differently and was faster.

While Fair Exposure 2.0 had been in development for quite a while, some of our more sophisticated ideas weren't able to make it into the initial release.  The changes in Fair Exposure 2.1, made in January 2012, are very minor -- mostly code reorganization, and a few bug fixes that addressed rare edge cases that sometimes influenced front page results.  We know this new version of Fair Exposure is a better representation of the world-class art produced by the deviantART community.    

We have a variety of improvements coming down the pipeline -- in particular, improvements having to do with topic "accuracy" (i.e. becoming better at detecting the topics of a deviation) and "popularity" (i.e. detecting whether a deviation is "popular" amongst a niche group or has broader appeal).    

Fair Exposure 2.1 is not inherently more "random" than Fair Exposure 1.0 was. The most significant determinate of order is still in deviants' submission/viewing/Favouriting patterns in general.  Similarly, all determinations of popularity are made by looking at the data, with no artificial fudge factors biasing towards one topic or away from another.  In particular, it does not replace art from a "popular" deviant (or topic) with art from a randomly-selected "unpopular" deviant.  Fair Exposure 2.1 explicitly attempts to select "popular" deviations that showcase as many "popular" topics as possible, whereas, in Fair Exposure 1.0, there was no explicit goal to showcase a wide variety of topics.   This does mean that if, for example, a deviation that showcases "people" and "photography" is displayed, the next several deviations are unlikely to be other "people" or "photography" deviations, unless they are also extremely popular.


:bulletblue:  Sharing the Love


Changes to Fair Exposure and Popular browse are in the interest of highlighting the best from a wide range of deviants and showcasing an array of styles and genres. Keep in mind that you can always browse by your particular interest using the category tree or join a group that matches your interests. We're a large community, and with Fair Exposure 2.1, we hope to bring more deviants into the spotlight.

We get that they are trying to recognize unknown artists, But some people aren't even artists! Theres nothing to see on the Popular page which makes me have to log out, look at deviantations then log back in and find it. Its such an anoying processssss GAAAAAAAAAAH. Please return the old system.

I'm confused about the results of the search. Were there any changes made recently? Because I don't get the logic behind the results.

I was looking for "Popular All Time" deviations. A deviation from 2008 with Comments: 36 // Favourites: 382 // Views: 10,565 is ranked higher than for example one that was posted in 2010 with Comments: 309 // Favourites: 829 // Views: 12,121.

Why?

HelpDesk answer: "The main gallery of deviantART has for sometime now been showing you a special browsing mode. This new browsing feature is called "Fair Exposure"...

I asked again: "I'm sorry, but that doesn't answer my question. There have to be some changes within the last week. I noticed it - and others did too. You might have a look at the forum. There's a thread about this subject.
I noticed it, because several of my deviations and some of my friend's were listed on the first result page. From one day to the next, some have vanished completely while others dropped down at least 10 or more places. We did not have any sudden activities. Neither of us got suddenly lots of comments or favs. We always used the same keywords for the search.

And again: How can a deviation that got more comments and more favs and more views be more popular than one that's two years older with less comments+favs+views? I point back to my original question. I you think it helps I can send you a screenshot of the old resultes compared to the ones I get now.
Also the results of the search jumped back between the old and the new constellation several times in the last few days. That means to me that there either is a bug somewhere or something was changed."

Help Desk: "Fair exposure is constantly evolving dependant on popular deviations. I assure you nothing has 'changed' in the way this works it is just making way for other deviations to be considered as popular. "


Sorry guys. This is stupid. You either have no idea what you're talking about or you think a lot of users here are blind or stupid.
When I read the comments here, a lot of people are everything but satisfied!

If 2 deviations are both in the 8 hours and 24 hours most popular, how come deviation 1 can be better in the 8 hours category, and deviation 2 better in the 24 hours category? wouldn't it make sense to maintain relative ranking across categories?

A good friend messaged me the other day, thrilled beyond belief because she'd spotted some of my writing on the first page of the "Most Popular of All Time" for the Literature section. (Clearly, I have lovely friends.) It's cool, yes, but I had suspicions because that one piece of mine really hadn't gotten much (comparatively) in the way of views, comments, or favorites.

So I did some searching and arrived here. After reading this article, I'm not sure whether I should be sad because my being featured on the first page is the result of an artificial equation spitting out my relatively unpopular work to diversify the Popular page.

Do I actually have anything to brag about? Do I have to tell my friend "sorry, but I'm not actually awesome, dA just needs me for the sake of 'Fair Exposure'"? I'm confused, especially about how this applies to the Literature sections.

Because of this system, every time a picture of a girls half exposed ass/breasts gets 13k views by all the guys who find that amusing, I'm forced to scroll past at least 10 every time I dig among the supposed "top works" submitted over the last few hours/days.

I barely ever find something I like in the first few 10s of deviations..

Why don't you guys just do it like it was years ago: [link] with the different sections?one for newest, one for popular and one for fair exposure and people could click on "browse" and view more from that section. :shrug: Just an idea.

^ I like this person. Personally, the main (and often only) reason that I search terms in the DeviantArt search section, is to find top professional quality art for inspiration, and so that I can learn from their techniques.

With this new "Fair Exposure" implemented on all of the search options, not only is it hard to find top professional quality deviations, but sometimes I have pages of deviations that are all by the same artist who has done several deviations of one particular character (for example when I search for the term "Wolf Warrior"). This would be fine if I liked their stuff and I was looking in their gallery, but I had to look through about 3+ pages before most of their stuff disappeared. Apart from anything, I don't think showing 3 pages of one persons work is very fair anyway.

Now finding high quality deviations using specific terms (like "Wolf Warrior") is very hard, and I am having to find my inspiration from elsewhere. It would be great if the Fair Exposure could be separated from the Popular so people can browse as they choose.

Just wanted to express my gratitude at the change from 'Fair Exposure 2.1' to raw popularity results which happened today. Hopefully this came about from you guys listening to community concerns, it actually seems a lot fairer this way :)

It's great to see what's actually popular being in the 'popular' tab again. Now I look forward to having the 'underappreciated' tab come along, which there has been so much clamor for; so I can find those rough diamonds that need some love too!

I'm hoping it's a permanent change, can I get some feedback on whether it will be?
Thank you :heart:

Very very bad move. In order to appeal to the pre-teens, youve disenfranchised your core content creators. The new algorithm is chaos, as an art-appreciator I can no longer seek out the best of the month for my visual research.

There's nothing wrong with meritocratic ratings, if people desire more exposure - they should simply improve technique and networking like the rest of us did.

How does giving each category a more even exposure "appeal to preteens"? It's going to cut down on homogenization and monopolization of the front page by popular content such as anime or other fanart. I'd say that's a slant /away/ from preteens.

"they should simply improve technique and networking like the rest of us did."

You're not taking into account that some categories naturally get less attention than others. It's an uphill battle.

I asked how the popularity of deviations was determined and don't feel that any effort was made to answer my question. The "answer" given above sounds like an add for you new algorithm as opposed to an explanation of how deviations are chosen. Some of the searches that prompted my queery were specific (e.g. searching pin up in Traditional -> paintings -> people), while others were general (e.g. not using a search, just going Traditional -> paintings -> people, and seeing what popped up). Not only did I see pieces in the first few pages that were, in my opinion, sub-standard, but when I crunched numbers, it appeared that the dA community agreed with my assesment. I found one painting that had been on line for about 5 years, had 97 views, and 1 fave. This piece was in the first few pages of a search for which there were tens of thousands of results. Many (dozens) of similiar examples were found. While art is a highly subjective thing, I don't think many would argue that all works of art are equal in quality. I rarely use the dA search because I always feel like I'm wasting my time. I understand that you want exposure for all of the deviants on your site, but there are way too many rank amateurs (sometimes very rank) whose work is shown well before the work of established professionals whose deviations have far better numbers. It's not a matter of stroking the egos of the more popular artists on dA as much as it is paying respect to those who have earned their popularity by demonstrating artistic skills developed through years of intensive study. In spite of the advertisement above, I feel that your new search algorithm leaves a lot to be desired.

Just to clarify -- Fair Exposure affects browse results, not search results.

Unlike Fair Exposure, the dA search algorithm must consider both "popularity" and "relevance" to the search query. This can lead to deviations that are less "popular" but more "relevant" appearing earlier in search results than deviations that are more "popular" but less "relevant". That said, the dA search algorithm has not been changed recently, nor is it affected by the recent Fair Exposure improvements discussed in this journal.

Thanks for the response. I appreciate the attempt, but as a math dork, I'm still not satisfied. I asked how popularity is determined and have so far received an email directing me to this page, and now a comment response, neither of which has explained HOW popular is defined. I would understand the math, if you would give it, but I have so far only received responses that tell me that you use popularity and relevance without ever defining either one. I did a search today, going traditional -> painting -> people, and searched pin up. Because of the HUGE popularity of one deviant, who had 64 pieces in the first 2 pages (120 deviations), I was only left with 56 others to examine the numbers on. Of those, at least 10 had fewer than 1000 views per year, and 2 had fewer than 100. Because some people don't join groups, I also checked the percent of views that result in faves, and found 3 pieces with a fave rate less than 1%, and 12 with a fave rate less than 2%. These were in the first 2 pages and are low numbers, and yet they meet your algorithms definition of popularity. I will understand the math if you throw it at me. Please, either ignore my question (and I'll stop bugging you about it), or answer my question - with an actual answer: How do you define popular??? While I appreciate that you responded,I know nothing more about how popularity is determined than I did before my inquiry.

I don't know if this is correct, but I think 'popularity' would be determined by recent page views, comments or favourites. Maybe even a combination.

as for why the numbers were so small for deviations on the first two pages, you are looking at 120 deviations as opposed to someone like me who would only see around 48. I am aware that does not fully explain why the numbers are so low, i am sure there would be SOME reason.

Actually, just to make things clear, did you enter a search term or did you choose a category? because if you have entered a search term then popularity may not cause deviations to display at the front. instead, relevance to search query will take priority.

can people explain to me why there are so much complaints from the popular artists? you dont like it when your art CANT be at the front page? pfft. why don't you draw sincerely from your heart and stop asking for attention. if your art is REALLY good, they will be discovered soon. I saw really good artists and they dont even bother to active in DA but because they are really good, slowly their art will be appreciated.

seriously, these so-called 'popular' artists complaining so much that their art cant be on the front page because of this system are seriously self-centered and snobbish.

Short answer:

Many clients use DA as a search engine to seek out talent for undertaking projects. With the search results screwed, the artists with the ability to fulfill the brief are not being presented as they should.

For those of us that produce bespoke art for a living, little things like this are a big deal. Yes, there is the intrinsic joy of creation, however DA is often used as a tool for acquiring work.

If this makes me self-centered and snobbish, then so be it ;)

There has been some moderate improvement today but the problem is far from fixed.

I second this, I had a deviation on Saturday that got enough favs to be on the first page of it's subcategory, but it was not there, and seems to have disappeared completely when trying to browse for it.
In this case my deviation is this [link] should appear in Fan Art/Cartoons & Comics/Digital/Movies & TV but when I browse for it today, I don't find it at all (set to 1 week, 1 month, or all time).

This is despite that the Site Update journal says its "fixed".
I see that browsing in specific subcategories is much more ordered today than it was, but still deviations seem to be vanishing completely from it.

After looking into your report a bit more, we found a bug that could prevent deviations from being considered by Fair Exposure if they were initially uploaded to Sta.sh, and only a "long time" later published to dA. If this sounds like it applies to your deviation, then a fix should be coming soon.

Thanks again for the report!

I have recently noticed, that the further down the gallery tree you move, the more "random" and non-comprehensible.

I am talking about the Most Popular of All Time browsing in some galleries. If i browse Digital Art > Typography I notice nothing off the usual. But as soon as I reach the end of the gallery tree it becomes awkward Digital Art > Typography > Calligraphy the fifth deviation is a miscat with one comment and 16 views.

There seem to be a lot of issues with the algorithm, when it has no sub-catgories to sort the deviations by.

As far as I can see, this principle gives a lot more exposure to miscats.
Probably because people tag a Photography as such, but upload it to a Digital Art gallery. As I understand it, and you're welcome to prove me wrong, if something is in Typography and tagged as something else f.e. Photography, it would move up in the line of deviations to be shown further on top? Because it differs from deviations tagged with Typography? That kinda sucks :B

I hope you iron out the bugs :)

I can see the merits in implementing a system like this. Reading the journal, all the logic follows through. But when I tried just now to browse the most popular of all time, the results are nothing like the pages of absolutely breathtaking beauty I remember that the used to be. I remember browsing the most popular of all time and finding drawings, paintings, and photography that were simply so stunning I could not stop staring at them. How do I find those now? It seems going through all the subcategories would have the same experience, but why create more work? I agree with the deviant below me who said this algorithm doesn't do justice to the amazing talent deviantart has - you should be exemplifying their work, not hiding them in sub-categories.

As an aside, when I did a search for the most popular of all time, the first deviation that comes up is a piece of literature. I have nothing against literature, but it seems backward to me for deviantart, which places an inherent emphasis on the visual (you cannot buy prints of literature, for example), to show a piece of literature instead of a visual image as its first result. I agree again with the deviant below me that this could be a turn off to casual visitors, since it makes navigating the site more confusing, and forces the user to go through more clicks in order to find what they want.

It doesn't work. Submissions with zero faves, and or views, now appear, erroneously, amongst the "most popular of all time". This is unrepresentative of the high standard of work that can be found here on dA, and of it's community, and could be off-putting for the casual visitor.

I'm browsing the Anime & manga category traditional media sub-category, All time favourites, now I don't really understand how this "fair exposure" works, but I don't think is fair at all that works from already popular artists that have less favorites than mine show up on there yet mine, that has more than 1,000 faves, I cannot find and yet I see deviations with 800, 500 faves showing up there. By the amount of faves only, my artwork [link] should be showing up on this page: [link] yet I have gone through pages and pages of all time favorites in that category and I cannot find my artwork, maybe I'm doing something wrong, I don't know but can someone please explain to me how I can make sure that my work is showing up for people somewhere? this is all very confusing for your customers...

I think this system would ACTUALLY work if you guys did more policing and enforcing on your rules. I'm seeing so many mis-categorizations that it's not even funny. I can understand you guys being understaffed but honestly it can't be that hard to get volunteers is it? I mean this site is huge and it wouldn't take much for you guys to post a journal like this asking people to submit a form or whatever to volunteer...

Anyway, I am honestly not noticing much of a difference with this new system. I'm still seeing a lot of the same stuff on page one with no real change. And I hear tell that fanart and some of the more popular digital art form categories are now being largely blocked form hitting the front page? I'm not really sure if this is true or not but that hardly seems fair if it is. I understand you guys wanting less popular art forms to also have their chance to see the front page but it's not fair to less popular artists trying to get more exposure in those popular categories from ever having a chance at seeing page one. I've sort of given up long ago at ever being able to see my stuff reach page one regardless of how hard I try to improve and get decent exposure here.
