Kudos for the +Follow Following Info

Kudos for the +Follow Following Info that now appears when you click the "## more people" fave link on your photostream page!!!

Sad as it is to say this, I appreciate seeing a thread on here that acknowledges the positive things that Flickr does. This is a great site, and it seems to be filled with far too many people who only complain and fail to recognize what Flickr allows us to share - your beautiful wildlife photography and my, well, Tgirl NSFW pics (don't bother looking, it isn't your thing). That such divergent images can co-exist in a single sphere is, honestly, rather refreshing. Flickr provides a grande forum that can encompass wildly different aspects of 'artistic expression' and still be true to the medium.

Kudos for you for communicating it. Since I did not upload/posted any image in the last 2 years I wasn't aware of this improvement.

Not only on the photo page.
This is also a new feature in Notifications, comes up as a modal when one clicks the boldface "## others".

Appreciated.
Especially the "+Follow / Following" info!

I don't see any new feature that looks like what's discussed here. Or better, I don't see any new feature at all.
MacOS Monterey 12.0.1 with Safari 15.1.

It apears it works for me, but I just not understood it.

I think there are Safari issues with it. You've probably seen this already, but just in case:

Yes I did. But I can see on the photo pages the names of people who faved. I don't know about notifications because I have disabled getting those for faves.

Even if there are "many"? Anyway, here is a screen capture of the new feature:

New favers display

If this popup doesn't come at all, maybe it is just a staged roll-out.

Now you forced me to find a photo with "many". But yes that works. I didn't realize that pop-up was new. Normally I never click on that link. It's nice if people faving, but I don't really care. If they don't, I don't care either.

What I don't see, or perhaps overlook is

the "## more people" fave link on your photostream page

No idea what's meant with that.

I'm probably not understanding this, but the popup that shows the names of the others that faved the image, has always existed. It's the blue or white "follow" buttons that are new. Correct?

I think so? Honestly, I never really click on this buttonlink much either. (I'm another one who feels no obligation to "fave back" or whatever.)

Wasn't there something else limited about it in the recent past, like you couldn't scroll through the whole list or something? I dunno.

John Frattura:

yes; the expanded view of those faving the pic lets you do more in relation to each person.

OP is referring to the place I clicked. (Should have said "photo page" not "photostream page".)

Ok, so I actually do understand, for a change. When I saw this topic yesterday, like erstkers is saying, I had no idea what '"## more people" fave link on your photostream page' even meant. I was looking for a link that had a double sign "##" in it.

Thanks. I was already wondering if I had to go into the panic, upset or angry mode. But it appears I was just confused. Then the feature works for me too. I think.
