There are 5,841 creative projects to discover, be inspired by, and support on Kickstarter right now. A couple hundred more from around the world will launch before the day is over. They spring from the minds of emerging and established creators of all stripes, and span the creative spectrum. There’s something for everyone. But how can you find the ones that speak directly to you? Today we're announcing something helps with just that: Recommendations .
Recommendations are a personalized entry point to discovering new projects tailored specifically to your interests and taste — whether that’s illustrated literary humor mags, MIDI chord-controlling step sequencers, mixed media oral histories of Chicago neighborhoods, or anything in between. To find the projects we think you’ll love, we’ve designed a simple but powerful algorithm. It compares millions of pledges to find projects backed by the same people, identifies those with the strongest affinity, then uses that information to predict which projects are most likely to resonate with you. Kickstarter’s mission is to help bring creative projects to life. Part of that means thoughtfully connecting creators with backers excited to support the future of creativity. We’ve woven a number of connection points into different discovery features: Projects We Love are gems surfaced and shared by our team. Curated Pages are collections of projects hand-picked by some of the world’s foremost creative communities. And our social channels, like Facebook , Twitter , Instagram , Medium , Pinterest , and Tumblr feature some of the best and brightest projects looking for support at any given moment. These curated feeds with a human touch complement automated recommendations well. Together we hope they make it easier to find what you’re looking for, or be surprised by something you didn’t know you were in search of. Recommendations are the latest step in that direction, but there’s more to come! In the meantime, take a look at what's recommended just for you.
