We’ve fixed a few issues that were making “Tumblr crushes” less fun than they should be:
1) Once you’ve liked a few hundred posts, your Crushes rarely change.
Now they’re pulled from your recent activity, so you can see where your love is going right this second.
2) Crushes only count Likes, and don’t factor in Reblogs.
Now they include both!
3) The total counts don’t give context to all the other blogs you follow.
The counts now show the percentage of your attention that you’re giving your crushes. (Out of everyone you Like and Reblog!)
4) Calculating crushes kills our databases.
Crushes now run on an asynchronous queue that refreshes every 12 hours.
This seems to be a better deal with the Crushes.
