The Flickr blog series continues again this week, this time revealing our most viewed images from 2010. Unlike last week where I wrote about Interestingness, the ‘most viewed’ statistic is easy to understand, simple to measure. It’s what our online community looked at the most.
So let’s start randomly – our 99th most viewed image so far this year?
You’ll notice a trend with some of our most popular images. They are closely tied to user generated content – images submitted to us by you. And, most of them are tied to your interpretations of the 2012 chassis. Apparently, you have a lot of interest in that. We’ll get to some of your images shortly.
Wondering what our tenth most viewed image is? It’s a screen capture of Tony Kanaan in pit lane at Long Beach. This pic also inspired a blog post earlier this year. He certainly gets cool points for this.
You may notice there’s not been one photograph mentioned so far. You’re right. Our most popular image taken by a photographer? It’s at number 4 with 2,386 views.
Our 67th most viewed? All 33 drivers in a row.
Even though the majority of uploaded Flickr images were taken by IndyCar photographers, our most popular pics might surprise you – because you created them.
So the top-3? Here we go….
At #3 -
The second most viewed image?
And in P1 with 3,411 views. Drum roll please….
We started using Flickr as an experiment this season. We wanted to bring a variety of images to our fans, revealing a behind-the-scenes look at our races, announcements, parties and so on.
What we learned was that it’s our fans that drive the online experience. You determine what content is successful, engaging and meaningful. And in some cases, fittingly, you determine what is our most popular content. Thank you.
Next week – our ‘most favorited’ images. Will you win once again?
