We are building an image hosting and sharing website, there will be a page where user can see all photos uploaded by website users.
In this page the user can sort the photos by votes, most comments, most viewed.
First issues we are thinking about is, which sort should be the default when the user open the page for the first time?
We thought to be the most voted, but this may keep the same photos on the page for some days and may be months without big change. also the same apply to most comments and most viewed may be.
What is the best practice to do this page and its sorting.
My page will be something like this: http://vi.sualize.us/popular/ put with more sorting options.
