Flickr Turns 10

Flickr Turns 10: The Rise, Fall and Revival of a Photo-Sharing Community

A well written history of the photo sharing site flickr of which I’ve been a member since 2004, just after it launched.

For me, flickr continues to be a great online community and I’ve made many friends there. And, I started posting images there for embedding here because I was attempting to save bandwidth but now I’m enjoying embedding and sharing other people’s images as well as my own. Few other services in flickr’s category allow this.

While I’m not crazy about Yahoo’s site changes, flickr remains an important part of my online activity and identity.
