The Ordered Timeline Game: Strategic Posting Times Over a Temporally Ordered Shared Medium

Abstract : We consider a game of timing between a random number of content creators, who compete for position and exposure time over a shared medium such as an on-line classified list. Contents (such as ads, messages, multimedia items or comments) are ordered according to their submission times, with more recent submissions displayed at the top (and better) positions. The instantaneous effectiveness of each ad depends on its current display position, as well as on a time-dependent exposure function common to all. Each content creator may choose the submission time of her content within a finite time interval, with the goal of maximizing the total exposure of this content. We formulate the problem as a non-cooperative game, analyze its symmetric equilibrium, characterize it in terms of a differential boundary value problem and devise a numerical schemes for its computation.
