The popular feature has been redesigned and instead of showing the most popular photos within certain time frames, like today, this weeks, this month and ever, it shows what is most popular right now. It's much more beautiful and simple and easy to use with only one popular feature instead of four and a large majority of users were only looking at popular today anyway.
In this new feature an old photo that gets a lot of attention will climb in the list of popular photos if it gets more views, likes and comments etc. so there will be a much bigger diversity with the possibilty to enjoy really good photography that was uploaded a long time ago to 1x. At the same time it will favor new photos a bit so that the popular feature is always fresh and up to date and also shows what's most popular from what's been published the last day.
Another big advantage over the old popular today and week features is that the new popular feature presents all photos on the entire site based on their current popularity with endless scrolling so the list will never run out unless you scroll to the bottom of our nearly 65 000 fantastic published photos!
