Regarding Facebook and social networks...
Mar 13, 2012

As you all are aware, we have sharing buttons available throughout the site (including challenges). I realize this is seen as enabling users to try and lobby their personal networks to vote for their image. But the reality is that even without social buttons, these are still public URLs that can be shared on any social network. Simply a few keyboard strokes more than clicking on a social button. And also, we intentionally have those buttons there, as we want more people to discover challenges, pictures in challenges, and overall, to increase participation and competition.

All of that being said, as noted in the other thread I started today, we want to find a way to make voting on challenges conducive to bubbling up the highest quality images, and so we understand the inherent problem that exists. So please be patient with us as we try to refine the voting structure and overal format in the coming weeks to move things in the right direction.

Cheers!
