What is Indi Buzz?

We've replaced single action "voting" for videos with "Indi Buzz," which is a more accurate way to acknowledge and reward the best video creators and content. The blue fire symbol (fire symbol) below each video or channel represents Buzz points. The videos with the most Indi Buzz points can win Challenges with Buzz based prizes and the most Buzz also helps capture the attention of our network of feature film casting directors, Grammy Award winning music producers and celebrity judges who are always looking for talent.

How Indi Buzz Works - Buzz reveals how much total interaction each video submission receives (on Indi and also in various social media platforms) in the form of "points," calculated using Indi's proprietary Buzz algorithms, which include the following variables:

  • Views: The number of times an Indi video is watched.
  • Likes ( ) : The number of likes an Indi video gets.
  • Follows ( ) :  The number of times an Indi video is followed.
  • Facebook Interaction: The number of shares, likes and comments that an Indi video gets after being shared from Indi.
  • Twitter Interaction: The number of tweets and retweets that an Indi video gets after being shared from Indi.
  • Pinterest Interaction: The number of pins and comments that an Indi video gets after being shared from Indi.
  • Instagram Interaction: The number of likes, comments and follows that an Indi video gets after being shared from Indi.
  • What Are the Symbols:

  • Blue Fire Symbol ( ) - The total points accumulated as a result of video Views and Likes on Indi, the number of shares, likes and comments that an Indi video gets on Facebook, and the number of tweets and retweets that an Indi video gets on Twitter.
  • Share Symbol ( ) - Click on the symbol to view options of where to share an Indi video (either Facebook or Twitter).
  • Like Symbol ( ) - Click on the heart symbol to "like" a video on Indi.
  • Follow Symbol ( ) - Click on the Follow symbol to follow the Artist or Channel on Indi.
  • How do you stand out on Indi? - You create the most engaging content and upload it to the appropriate Channel, Challenge, Album or Forum. The video with the most Indi Buzz will gravitate to the top.

    How do I receive more Indi Buzz? - Indi Buzz points are earned by posting videos to your own Indi Channel or any Challenge or Forum on the platform (by any individual/brand/retailer, artist, nonprofit), and then accumulating the most views, likes, follows, shares directly from your Indi video to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest, comments and shares thereafter on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest, and tweets & retweets thereafter on Twitter.
