While doing the mosaic I had a closer look at the stats (v, f, c) of my top-20. I summed them up for the pictures in my mosaic: v-17084 | f-1296 | c-940.

What's your mosaics vital f-stats?
(please don't take this too serious, it's just playing with numbers)

[add] v/f = 13.2 (one fave per 13.2 views)
SuperDave!! Posted 15 years ago. Edited by SuperDave!! (member) 15 years ago
Wow!!! Your 20 photos in your mosaic have more views than my whole photostream does. ;-((

EDIT: OK, curiosity got the best of me and I finally counted my stats.

V-7,014, F-281, C-386
Total photostream views: 15,815

So that means that these 20 photos account for 44% of the total views of my photostream.......... WOW!!! That doesn't say a lot for the rest of my photo's ....... ;-P

I will post my collage later, but was intrigued by this.

My stats: v-3491, f-231, c-198

Not only are Josef's numbers incredible, his favorites to views percentage is the highest in this thread thus far: 7.59%.

My own 2005 top 20 stands in at 6.62% favorites to views ratio.

top 20 fav'd in 2005

I have spent four months on flickr.

My top 20 fav'd photos received...

221 favs, and

This means...

3.96% of people who viewed these photos also fav'd them,
5.39% of people who viewed these photos commented on them, and
I received 136.20% more comments than favorites.

My top 20 fav'd photos have an average of 279 views, 11 favs, and 15 comments.

My #1 fav'd photo is #3 for views and #2 for comments.
My #1 most viewed photo is #2 for favs and #3 for comments.
My #1 most commented photo is #4 for views and #4 favs.

One photo in the top 20 has no comments whatsoever.

20% of these 20 photos hold 80% of the favorites, causing me to grit my teeth because that dumb rule has been proved correct yet again.

For a meaningful comparison with rebeccamissing's original post, to get favourites as a percentage of the number of views:
Favourites divided by views multiplied by 100.
442 / 9149 x 100 = 4.8%
50 / 1597 x 100 = 3.1%
309 / 4,893 x 100 = 6.31%

Those whose egos got a boost by having stats better than Josef's, sorry to bring you back to ground :-)

Ok, here's my totals:

I got an avg. 69.78 views per fave (but the majority of views come from my 2 top faves, and I've got one other high-viewed but not-so-high faved photo, so the numbers are slightly skewed because of that.)
phitar Posted 15 years ago. Edited by phitar (member) 15 years ago
ok, i love maths and games.

so the top 20 images got 80% of the views. why bother :-)

the top 3 photo views totals 61444 (one of them not in the top 20), more than half the total, so it heavily skews everything. that's what external links can do...

i laughed at jauderho's pic of hot women stats !

Too much work to make a total

view=1098 for the 1st (Une nuit blanche à Paris)
fav 46 for the 1st (Aie! they will see you!)
53 comments for the 1st (same)

but interestingness first is "shaving"

And my photostream has been viewed 59287 times: WHAT DOES that MEAN? as I have almost 8000 images now on line? They looked at some? I looked at them? Someone understands what that means?

I find funny the images "most favorited and most viewed" and the differences between them, but when I look at the twenty, I like the diversity!

bigeoino 15 years ago
in comparison to some of the ones above I'm v. low:-
3005/ 112/ 100

(one fave per 27 views).
(one comment per 30 views).

Max view - 736/ 22/ 20
Min view - 32/ 3/ 2

but they only correspond to about 16% of total viewings since I started - total 18760 but started in 2004 - of my photostream.
But only really 'discovered' or used groups since June/July... so external views only arrived via tags or friends.

So hopefully 2006 will be the year!
sk8mama 15 years ago
Food for thought: I'm brand new to Flickr, been on all of two months, so I can't claim hundreds of views, etc. How much ego is tied up in these numbers? How important are they?
FlyButtafly 15 years ago
sk8mama - it all depends on the person. ;) I think everyone appreciates the views/comments/faves (I know I do :) but they mean different things to different people. I wouldn't get hung up on them. Though when you see people with hundreds of faves per photo, it can be hard not to. ;)

I think I did it wrong the first time. We are counting the views, favorites and comments of just the top 20 FAVORITED images right?
Violentz Posted 15 years ago. Edited by Violentz (member) 15 years ago
one other factor that should be considered, myself and many other members make comments on their own photos to thank people or respond to a remark or question. Shouldn't our own comments be overlooked when we factor in the total number of "comments" ?

I only added up the numbers for my top 20 faved - but I neglected to subtract my own comments, so I do need to go back and change the number for that. I just haven't bothered - yet. ;)
Violentz 15 years ago
well, I'm not sure you're required to subtract your own comments, I just did because I know I thank everyone who leaves me a comment, so I probably have just as many of my own comments on photos than I do from Flickr members. hehe

So rebekka had 624,830 views two months ago, and 710,000 four weeks ago. So that should be +/- 90,000 views a month.

So today, while writing this reply, she should have 800,000 views. At the beginning of May 2006, she'll reach the million :-) Now that's something!

1 000 000 views / year. Impressive!
