We’ll have to wait on the details, but will the recent announcement that Yahoo! and Facebook are going to be tying their services together actually mean that us amateur photographers can stop trying to decide whether to share our photos on Flickr, or Facebook, and be able to tie the two groups of contacts together without leaving folks who only use one of the two services out in the cold when it comes to commenting?
I sure hope so. I get tired of trying to troubleshoot the current methods of sharing my recent Flickr photos on Facebook, let alone knowing that many of my family and friends won’t click through to Flickr the same way they will to a FB album. Yet, I also get tired of all the photo tools I like on Flickr not being available on Facebook. (Sharing different sizes, letting others use my photos in blog posts, etc.)
We’ll see what happens.Tags: Facebook, Flickr, Photo
