Where People Click on Video Posts
Was just inspecting the hottest spots are on the new homepage and found it interesting/humorous to see where people tend to click, surely subconsciously. See the screenshot below.

People tend to click right where Key's and Peele's faces meet for their kiss in the thumbnail. In the title of that post, "Peele" and "Bloopers" are where clicks tend to go.

On the "hot chick" post the girl's posterior is highly targeted. And while the word "chick" is the most clicked word in the title, the "2 comments" link was clicked most for some reason.

Interesting stuff.

Are you stalking us? How are you doing that remotely? I'd like to see the same for my own and other people's submitted videos.

From a visual design perspective, I find this interesting. Some days I wish I knew how to conjure a website like you do, @Lucky760.

Inquiring minds want to know what people think about hot girls with balls.

Ah, I didn't realize there actual questions awaiting answers.

It's not tracking site-wide, just the front page and maybe Unsifted. It's JS code on the page that remembers whenever something is clicked on the page by a visitor. There's no information about what an individual has clicked; all the data is consolidated.

I don't see any other questions except what people want to know about chicks with balls, but I can't answer that question.

Ah hah! I see VS is using heatmap.it according to my new uBlock Origin extension! And it's all over!
