For the project, we have decided to create a social network for movies. Specifically, in our app, users can follow and be followed by other users, like movies, and see the hottest movies (top movies) in each genre as well as the activities of people they are following. The main motivation for creating a social network is: we want to help users choose what movies they might be interested in. In our app, users can see his/her followers’ recent liked movies. And since people’s behaviors are heavily influenced by social proof, they are more likely to watch these movies.
