I Should Know This By Now...

Posted by: John Crothers on 05/17/2013 - 7:47 PM

But if I look at one of my images (chick 3) it has the f (which I assume is facebook) and the number 52.

What is that? The picture is showing 0 views so how can it have 52 shares (if that's what the #52 means).

Can anyone remove the giant question mark from above my head?

That is the number that it has been shared and only showing 5 and shows you have had 10 visitors on that image.

Posistion 0 is the one I am looking at that shows 52 shares and 0 views on my account. I was maing sure that was the one you were looking at as well. When you said 5 shares 10 views. If so, it doesn't seem we can trust the information we are given too much.

52 is the # of likes for your entire gallery

It's not the number of shares, if you posted it on facebook it is the number of people that "liked" it when you posted it. I posted one a couple days ago and watched the number change as people "liked" it.

What is the link?

 

Posted by: Heather Applegate on 05/17/2013 - 8:18 PM

You have zero views on it because no one actually clicked the link to see it, they just liked your post.

Even 52 likes can't be right. I only have 100 friends on facebook and I have never gotten more than about 12 likes on ANY image I shared on facebook.

John... it can still happen that you end up with 52. If a friend likes your post, their friends can see that they liked it, then they like it from their page... and it ends up counting.

I haven't figured it out yet to be honest, but I do not post new images to FB so it can't be FB likes on that particular image right off the bat. I think it is more about the whole gallery.

 

Posted by: Heather Applegate on 05/17/2013 - 9:44 PM

The Facebook icon and number on the left of your page (below your bio) is the number of folks that have liked your whole gallery (profile)... under a particular image though are the ones that liked that particular image (or post of your image). That's how it works for me anyways.

I posted an image a few days ago, a handful of people liked the post (though few actually clicked through) and those likes translated to the number under the image.

The same goes for pinterest - I have over 1600 pins of one image in particular. 1600 people did not personally go to my image's page to pin it. Repins account for the increase in number so quickly. Same concept with facebook.

The facebook # includes initial likes/posts, plus the number of other people liking, sharing, & commenting on those posts, plus links to it in comments on other stories. (Just yesterday I included a link in a comment on a previously posted link, and the counts for both pages went up one.)
