Yes I’ve noticed this too. The amount of views you get will far exceed the amount of reads every time. I’ve also noticed that even though readers will fully read your articles, they may not necessarily clap for them. It made me wonder why. Did they think it was a piece of crap not worthy of claps? lf I read a story that I like, I usually give it at least 10 claps. I don’t understand why some people would only give 1 clap for instance. Is that meant to be a pity clap or something?! :-)
