Thanks for the tip about 500PX.
I've noticed that the images on 500PX seem sharper, and show more detail.
Also, except for the cheesy nudes, more of the images look like they were taken by more accomplished photographers.

Though the controls are not as intuitive, and the site is more difficult to navigate.

After a couple of days playing on 500PX, here are some observations:
-Images do look better on 500PX.
-It is such a busy site, with so many submissions, that your pictures can easily get lost in the crowd. I noted that my visibility on its version of "EXPLORE" went down to ZERO in fourteen minutes after uploading.
-Alot of very ordinary images get hundreds, or a thousand "LIKES". Clearly some contributors are using bots to inflate their numbers.
-Their members are not a chatty bunch. They don't seem to comment on submissions as much as on ClickASnap.
-Neither are they very social. It seems that they are less likely to follow your work than the ClickASnap users.
-Finally, they don't pay for views.

That’s some very interesting statistics. The only one I wouldn’t agree with is images looking better there as the one image that is hosted both there and here is clearly better quality on Clickasnap

As for the bots, yea flickr amd 500px are absolutely saturated with them. We block them instantly and have sophisticated algorithms to handle this as bots have no value to us
