I posted this shot on Flickr the other day and it got a staggering 1.879 views in the first 24 hours, making it my first photo to get over 1.000 views.
Funny enough the statistics for the image only shows a total of 77 views in the first 24 hours, but 1,897 views all time. The way they collect the data for the statistics doesn't seem to fit with the new way they show the images on the front page stream etc. I'm guessing that you now gain a "view" every time someone scrolls past your image on pages like the Explore list or in their contacts recent photos.
I'm definitely not complaining, just puzzled that the numbers don't add up.
