"14 Views" what does that mean? - September 29th 2017, 06:17 AM

I just looked at the blog entry I made today (well, yesterday at this point) and saw that it had fourteen views. What does this mean? I only have four people on my contacts? How did someone not in my contacts view my blog?

Your blog is available to everyone unless you go to the settings and change it to only friends.

We may shine, we may shatter,
We may be picking up the pieces here on after,
We are fragile, we are human,
We are shaped by the light we let through us,
We break fast, cause we are glass.
Cause we are glass.

Hey there,

First off, are you sure your blog (or at least that particular entry) is set as private? It may seem like a silly question, but I just wanted to double check since you didn't specifically mention it in your original post.

Another thing to consider is that private entries are able to be seen by contacts and moderators. If you're making a single entry private there's only one check box for ''contacts and blog moderators'', and if you're making your entire blog private then you can only change the ''contacts'' section and not ''moderators''. That means that Community Moderators, Project Advisors, and Project Coordinators can all view your blog regardless of settings, so that might account for the high number.

Alternatively, it could just be that it's fourteen views rather than fourteen viewers. So any of your contacts and/or any of the moderators could have viewed it several times and I think that would have given you that number. (I'm not one hundred percent sure on that though, so if a Community Mod or PA wants to chime in, feel free to confirm/correct as necessary.)

Hopefully that helped a bit at least.

then you hide or keep on running
