Feature Sneak Peek: Popular Rooms
On Wednesday, in Habbo Finland, a new feature pilot was launched. It’s an add-on to the existing Navigator, and its main raisen d’être is simply to promote rooms that are popular within the Hotel and to help you find good rooms to visit.
The feature is based on super complex algorithms, which include criteria such as event types and room conditions. During the pilot, five categories were used; chat, party, games, pets and collectors – however, the possibility to add more is obviously there. In each category you’ll find ten rooms plus an image of the room owner appearing next to each listing.
This will eventually be released in all Hotels worldwide, however, there is no word yet on when this will happen. The algorithms are still being tweaked and the feature experimented on. Below you’ll see a couple of screenshots from the Finnish Hotel.
