hello :)
I am noticing that last 2 weeks or more my views are going down more than usual, it's just weird. Is anyone having the same issue? I am not doing anything different than I did before.

Your latest photo, uploaded today, has 52 favs at this time. Most of your images seem to get a lot of favs. Each fav should update the totals on the photo pages when they are given, my favs are no more powerful than anyone else's fav. Staff has said in the past that even without any favs, each photo page will eventually reflect the correct number of views. Even though it already had a lot of favs, I faved "Gerbera", I did not unfav because I like it. The view count jumped from 488 to 499 when I refreshed the page.

Something is wrong - I posted a picture 6 hours ago and it's had 40 views.Normally it would have had 100 to 150 by now.
I have a feeling that my contacts are not seeing it. This happened several times before.

This happens with mine often , friends and the odd contact say
they don't see my photos until the day after posting .
When that happens my only views come from the groups I post them in .
Suspect it happens to many more too !

The old page www.flickr.com/photos/friends is foolproof: your friend posts a photo, you see it!

I have been on Flickr for over a decade. On the 19th I had over 15,000 views which was higher than normal and on the 20th I had just over 3,000 views, my lowest ever. I usually have a group of a few dozen that like or comment on my photos. Very few yesterday. Something is up. Hopefully it will be corrected in a few days.

The shot I posted early yesterday had 70 views after 10 hours. I deleted it,re-uploaded and it had 100 views in the first hour.
Quite a few of my contacts commented,and when asked,said they hadn't seen the shot before the second posting.

A good number of these views are a result of you posting here in this thread. I agree with you though, I don't always see all of my contacts new photos by relying solely on my feed.

I posted the message below in the following thread, because I believe the issues are related:

www.flickr.com/help/forum/en-us/72157719585988277/#reply7...

Still slow, and it's been weeks, not days. Slow load speed, intermittently unable to add to groups and albums..

Even this page takes 5 minutes to load.

And then there is this thread:
www.flickr.com/help/forum/en-us/72157719488471059/

I've had low views for over a month, with occasional one day spikes. My guess is that the low views are real and reflect the crappy performance of Flickr. There are just going to be fewer views when pages load more slowly because fewer pictures are viewed in the same amount of time. And some people just give up and do something else.

@Flickr: Most of the comments I see here are from PRO members. In other words, they are PAYING customers.
