Having just been blocked from liking for going through and trying to like all the songs on my private playlist of favorites, I'm frustrated that the like limit applies to such things.
Sure, it's important to make sure any likes are organic, but when the discover feature has given such suggestions as"like more tracks to get more recommendations," what else are users to do to but go through and like songs they've saved?
Especially if all the songs are on a private playlist, especially if they're all from different artists, and especially if the user has already listened to them, either the like limit shouldn't apply, or the user should be able to curate their recommendations in a different way. I would disagree that attempting to give the algorithm more data to recommend better songs counts as "unfairly boosting popularity" if popularity isn't a relevant factor.
Does anyone else agree? Should everyone simply like and add tracks to various playlists at the same time? Should users who want to get more recommendations have spend excessive time listening to songs they've enjoyed just to like them?
Maybe a feature that would allow users to get recommended songs based on all the songs in a playlist would fix this.
Apologies for any gross ignorance or obvious solutions I'm not seeing, but in the case the above paragraphs are error-free, I'd like to know what other people think about the like limit and ways to get recommendations.
