Just how many people really look at your photos.

Isn't that what we all would love to know? How can we tell how many people have looked at our photos.

I know that I often wonder if  people actually see the photos I share across the social networks.

Are they slipping under peoples noses, or are people actually viewing them.

It's always nice to get comments, likes or plus ones on a photo you've shared, but not everyone who looks interacts do they? Infact most people look and skip past.

So is there any way to tell just how many people really are looking at your photos?

As far as I'm aware there isn't on Facebook.

But I have just found out that there is on Google+ - yes thats right you can check just how many views your photos have had, and whats more you can also check how many views other peoples photos have had too!

So I thought I'd share this information with anyone else who didn't realise there was this hidden date available for all to see, this is my google+ profile and the photo I shared a few hours ago...

113 views, not bad really, then again the Quote I shared from someone elses time line has had over 133,000 views.

So there we go, now you can monitor your photos views.


  1. That's really interesting, I didn't event know that feature was there!

    Mine doesn't show views though, it's just got a '-' and I know it's not zero because there's comments and +1s. I wonder if I haven't got something set right?

    1. do all of your photos have a dash and no number? I noticed some of mien did I was wondering if it only showed once there was a certain number of hits, or after a certain length of time - try looking at your header photo and see if that has a number? or look at someone elses and see if that shows...

  2. Ooh thanks for this post - I didn't realise. Very simple and easy to do too.
