Unique Views ! And how our egos (don't) cope with it !
We're about to find out that we're not quite as popular as we thought/hoped we were. Or even more unpopular than we feared.
With the new Unique Views we'll get a fairly good idea of how many people really come and visit your photo. The 'views' stat which we had up until now, also gave you an extra view every time a person revisited your photo, and, well, kinda gave a wrong impression.
Well surely that won't make a big difference ? Will it ? It Will ?!
Yo ! I want my normal views again ! I want to be popular ! F#&k reality ! Would I be spending big chunks of my life on the double u double u double u if it was reality I was after ? Hell no I wouldn't ! So give me back them views, and give'em to me now ! These are people's delusions you're playing with here !
In short, most of us thought, "great, our percentages will go up. Finally I'll really see how much my photo was worth. I bet that finally it will become clear that 1 in 2 viewers actually liked my photo !"
Which is probably correct. And in some cases it will even turn out that there actually only were 2 viewers
