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?

Last week I wrote about Flickr in 2010 and mentioned that Flickr measures the popularity of images in a number of ways. One of these is called ‘Interesting’ and it’s a tough one to figure out because it’s not defined – it’s kind of a secret. When it comes down to it, it ranks our images based on how interesting they are – which is confusingly fascinating. This blog post kind of helped explain it. Kind of. Here’s what we have for you.
Our 99th most interesting image on Flickr
Regardless of the confusion here, I’m sharing some of our most ‘Interesting’ images with you.
What is number 1?
You may have noticed we utilized Flickr this season. We used it as a way of reaching a new community and to bring a new perspective to our sport, through imagery. We featured all of the races from the 2010 season, a few Race to the Party’s, the 2012 announcement, the 2012 fan-designed chassis, and much, much more.

To date, we’ve uploaded 2,876 images – in one season – with over a million views from fans.
Flickr measures the popularity of images in four ways – Interesting, Views, Favorites and Comments. More on that later.
For this post, I wanted to look back on share some of my favorite images from Flickr in 2010 and reveal some of the amazing shots our photographers captured. In the next few weeks, I’ll be revealing the most popular images, according to Flickr. Sit tight.
