So this friend of mine, who is a personal trainer, has a bussiness Instagram account. He did a contest where any follower could comment a picture of his to have a chance to win a pack of training equipment.
The comment needed to:
A problem arised when, after more than 200 people commented, he had to, somehow, randomly pick a comment that also passed these conditions.
So I did a quick search for available options and I didn’t find anything acceptable. Some were paid services and some other even required you to give them your credentials… which doesn’t make sense since pictures and comments are public unless the account is private. And I don’t think many private accounts do contests adressed to gain more followers.
In the future I might do a post about the decisions and the findings that features this little project. If I have to take one thing out of this is that conversational UI is super fun to work with!
