What is the purpose of the temperature signs?
The temperature is decided by an algorithm which looks at the combined attention a video/posts gets and the nature of this attention over different time periods. This way the system can predict if a video is hot or not just a few minutes after it has been posted on the site. A system that only relies on how many hits a video gets which is used by most sites is not as effective as it can go many hours before a story show up as hot. But the reality is that it was "hot" from the minute it was published.
