Your best 1.1

Last Friday we release to the Panoramio community a new feature called Your best photos.

The feature is very cool as it allows visitors to check your best photos, but I had to agree with you that this can get a bit repetitive for recurrent visitors to your account. It is for this reason that we are introducing today the first iteration of the feature based on the feedback provided by the community in the Panoramio Forum.

The default view for new visitors to a Panoramio user page will be the tab best photos.
The default view for visitors that have stored you in their Favorite photographers list, will be all photos. And this will be the default both visiting the account following the link in the Favorite photographers list in the user page and in the email we send with notifications for new photos added for your photographers.
All photos is now also the default when I visit my own gallery.

We think that this change on the defaults will allow you to show your best content to users that may not know your work and therefore feel more interested in it, while it will provide the fresh new additions to your galleries to those photographers that decided to add you as a favorite in Panoramio.

Thanks so much for the valuable feedback provided. Keep it coming so we can improve Panoramio for you!
