Information about the post

Signals about how popular it is (likes) and information about the content such as when it was posted, if a video how long it is and if any, which location is attached to it

Information about the person who has posted

This includes signals such as how many times you have interacted with that person in the last month (and so how interested you are in their content)

Your Activity

Your previous interactions with someone
