Your blog is one of the most interesting about VR and I like your posts, but to be fair, besides the points raised by other readers there, the skin tone experiment shows a picture with 1708 views and 211 faves (12.4%) and the other one with 685 views and 84 faves (12.3%). They generated the same percentage of faves. I expected a few percent points of difference, considering the unoptimized lights and background for the black skin and, as you said, her fans could respond more favorably to the avatar appearance they associate with her default white avatar. Yet, even with these unfavorable conditions, those who viewed the two pictures liked them and added them to their favorites in the identical way. The only substantial difference is the number of views, but a picture was posted 2 weeks later, thus the first one had more time to collect views, unless she took the numbers after the same amount of time. It's an interesting experiment, and I'd like to see more of this, just make sure that the methods are objective enough, in order to collect unbiased and reliable data.
