For years, the favorites list was limited to checking off a couple of check boxes - it was not able to be customizable at all. This was converted to the new Favorite Things. I put a threshold in of 10,000 users - if that many people have a tag, it probably was from the old system and has less weight because of how it was added.
If that seems to confusing, I can drop the threshold and just show all of them. I did do one thing slightly trixy though. The bold ones are in reverse order of the number of members who have the tag.
So what's everyone's thought on hiding the common tags? Too confusing? Just let it go?
Thanks for responding!
I understand the dilemma.
I'd lean towards highlighting them all.
1 - the fave item might be a BIG FAVE for a particular user
2 - Common faves are common for many reasons (E.g., CM's old fave scheme, a common Good, a popular Good, a desired Good, etc.)
3 - Most users won't appreciate the nuances you are trying to convey
4 - With Fave Matching, I find myself gravitating towards the most common expression of a fave activity in order to maximize fave overlap. (E.g., list "Sinatra" under Music as opposed to "Ol' Blue Eyes")
A lot of fave overlap, even if among just "too common" items, will still be perceived as a good thing.
If you want to be trixy, cross-ref the Fave against the "My Own Words" fields. If the Fave is mentioned in both places, it becomes a "Super Fave". If it is also a "Super Fave" for the other member, highlight it in the match/search list somehow, e.g., BLUE BOLD CAPS, whereas Faves that appear in only the Fave List are Blue Bold only.
Peace and blessings,
