No more likes <3
I've been wondering how a tookapic without likes would ...appear 😉
As most of you know the number of likes a photo gets is skewed to those who have lots of followers so comparing the number of likes of two photos from different users doesn't really mean anything.
This is even more so comparing two photos over a time period as the size of the community (and number of likes per day) has changed considerably.
A couple more reasons why it might be a good thing:
less intimidating for a user to take a streak photo
"easier" on new users who don't have many followers
encourages creating galleries such as "my favorite photos"
- reinforces that tookapic is not about competing but participating and creativity
I'm interested about what others think? Would you miss likes? Relived that they disappear?
P.S. There is still the issue of how to display "popular photos" each day. Something long along the lines of a ranking based on (1) views of photo page (2) number of comments and (3) number of stars/favourites might just work well enough.
