McSnapshots: Half a million served

Flickr's statistics pages are one of the more fascinating aspects of the site. They let you see just who's looking at your images and from where.

Yesterday was a landmark day for my photostream, as I discovered that my individual images had been looked at more than half a million times. That's an amazing number of views for what just a few years ago would have been pictures in an album or a shoebox under the bed. Something that would have been pulled out a couple of times a year (if ever) is now a public resource that's being shared all round the world and with people from all walks of life and all manner of cultures.

Here are some of the raw numbers for my photostream:

 YesterdayThis weekLast weekAll time
Photos and Videos 2449461,913500,110

Sets 5306320,908
Collections 02065
 2691,0292,091599,355

And these are the most popular images. I'm still astounded that just one image accounts for over 30% of all my image views. It's just a vending machine, after all...

That's a lot. Mine have notched up a little over 35,000.
