Lens man Uploads 5 Billionth Photo on Flickr
Just when you though Flickr is about to fade away, the photo-sharing site welcomes its 5 billionth photo captured by a young photographer.
The user who uploaded the photo is Aaron Yeo, a 20-year-old photographer and he tagged his photo with the caption: “I am Mr. 5 Billion, and there ain’t nothing you can do to stop me.”
This was a positive sign for Flickr, who everybody though will be going away anytime soon since Facebook has now become the largest photo-sharing site on the Internet. Add to this progress is the increasing number of uploads on Flickr since the late 2007.
On its About page, Flickr defined their goals. “In Flickr, you can give your friends, family, and other contacts permission to organize your stuff — not just to add comments, but also notes and tags. People like to ooh and ahh, laugh and cry, make wisecracks when sharing photos and videos. Why not give them the ability to do this when they look at them over the internet?”View Article Source »
