New to Clapper? Still trying to find your way around? Not sure if we’re available in your country? Have no fear: the Clapper FAQ is here!
What does an equal opportunity algorithm mean?
Clapper uses an equal opportunity algorithm, which means that every video that shows up on the FYP has equal opportunity to go viral. If you have 6 followers, you have the same chance to go viral as a creator with 60,000!
To get your video on the FYP, make sure it 1) has no watermarks, 2) has good recording or playback quality, and 3) follows our community guidelines.
Where can I report an issue?
In-app, you can report a video by clicking the arrow on the right-side of your screen. You’ll select the reason you’re reporting the video, then type up a summary of what you saw. Be sure to include a screenshot of your specific problem! To report a user, go to their profile and hit the 3 dots in the top right corner. Select why you’re reporting them, add a summary, and add any screenshots of your specific problem!
If you have to make a technical report or notice a glitch, DM us at @ClapperCreator or @ClapperAcademy with a summary of your issue, your device type (Android or Apple) the app version number, and a screenshot/screenrecording of the issue.
Off-app, you can DM us on Instagram or Facebook (@TheClapperApp) or email us at email@example.com. Again, be sure to include a summary of your issue, your device type (Android or Apple) the app version number, and a screenshot/screenrecording of the issue.
