The patent filed by ADOBE Inc. describes a system, method, and computer-readable media for distributing digital content across various platforms using trend-setting participants.

The system also determines visual similarity between items featured in digital posts and digital items in the catalog to enhance the distribution process.

Furthermore, the system determines trend-setting scores for participants on digital platforms based on their activities and identifies trend-setting participants. It then distributes digital content based on predicted demand metrics, ensuring that items with higher predicted demand are prioritized for display. The system also considers color palettes portrayed in digital posts and items to optimize content distribution. Additionally, the system uses behavioral metrics to identify trend-setting participants and distribute digital content accordingly, ensuring effective distribution across platforms based on participant activities and trends.
