Popular streams are Piictu’s daily Academy Awards. They elevate a set of photos to the highest pantheon of praise, making them champion examples of photo interactivity.
But with hundreds of streams started everyday, how do you make a stream that stands out? In an effort to de-mystify Piictu popular, we’ve reached out to some of our more successful users and learned some pointers on creating stunning Piictu streams.
Piictu all-star sh0e_wh0re has had several popular streams on Piictu including “jumping” and “how are u spending ur day.” She tells us “the best streams are the simple ones. The ones anyone can relate to and that it’s not gonna take us out of our way to contribute too as we all lead fairly busy lives.”
TylerDiane is another popular stream fiend whose “Half your face” and “stalker that I <3” streams were some of Piictu’s users favorites. She suggests that users” try to do something creative and not used yet.” “You need to know what the community likes” she continues, adding that streams where “you can take a picture with your friends, self, boyfriend/girlfriend, mom etc” are easy to engage and can spawn many piics from the same user.
The only advice Piictu HQ would add is to make sure you put more than one image in a stream. Posting three or four really gives people an idea of what you’re hoping to see. Then remember to revisit the stream and like others’ additions. Everyone likes a little love, and with some luck, your lovely stream will be Popular before you know it.
