I'm confused about the premise of this thread. It seems to me that people don't know what a certain photo looks like until they see it. So what does the total number of views have to do with popularity? (They could look at it and think it sucks, but that's still a "view.") Now, if it has a lot of people marking it "favorite" then, yes, it's popular. But the number of views? Isn't that just a result of how long it's been on flickr? Enlighten me.:)

most popular is not synonymous with favorite

You probably should ask Flickr why they use the number of views as an item/criteria to measure popularity!

In my case, if I see a thumbnail and click on it - and that's when the "view" count is added... - it means it got my attention somehow.

If I fave the shot, or not, that's a completely different issue...
