Looking back at Fansinaflashbulb

The most popular (the post with the most views and made any time in the last eight years) Fansinaflashbulb post in 2016, as it has been for the past seven years, was “Stills from Zapruder film of JFK Assassination.” (It contains the infamous and bloody frame 313.) In 2016 the countries that visited Fansinaflashbulb the most were, not surprisingly, United States, France, Germany, United Kingdom, Italy and Canada. Countries that had only a single visitor in 2016 include: Iran, Andorra, Angola, Nauru, Congo-Kinshasa, Senegal, Monaco, Palestinian Territories, Cayman Islands, Seychelles, and Jersey. Often what’s unpopular is more fascinating and compelling and profound than what’s popular. As we enter the new year, here are some of best least popular posts of 2016. These are posts that are great, and are well-worth reading, but only received a few views in 2016, arranged in the chronological order of the year they were created, from 2009 to 2014.
Thanks for reading!
