Re: Isn't it surprising the amount of "views" on posts?!

I don’t even understand how they track viewing a post.  It’s not like you hit something  to indicate you are viewing a post.  If you do a scroll drive by do they count that as a view?  I don’t get it.  


 

@Shawnie

sigh......................... I don't get it either........I the (very) old days we (pet lovers) would stay on here all night and have a wonderful time.  We made many,many close friends back then. Everything is soooooooo different now........................

 


 

 

            @Shawnie and @MalteseMomma, it's just an elementary software feature that increments the "view" counter each time any device opens the screen displaying your post.   As others have said, it doesn't tell us how many people have read the post...  it only tells us that post was displayed that many times.   Whether I'm logged in or not, if I refresh my screen several times right now with this post displayed, the counter will go up every time I refresh.   This basic counter is relatively meaningless.


Ah now i see!  I just upped your views a few!  Thanks for the explanation.
