We released on February the 2nd a new feature called best photos in Panoramio and we have released today the first iteration with new defaults to allow the best or the most recent content to be displayed depending on who visits the you account.
Panoramio photos are rated using a popularity algorithm. This ranking decides which photos show in a higher or lower altitude in Google Earth and Google Maps, but it can also be applied to many other features.
best photos go together with a very nice Map that contain all the photos that Panoramio members tagged as best and today’s photo of the week is the photo with highest popularity ranking from the best photos: that is the Best of the best
I wish you all as always the best weekend ever ;)
