In my weekly review of feeds concerning Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 I ran across the news that Flickr has improved their ability to share content with other sites. As I continue to collect material for my “WEB 2.0 for Students” class that I’ll be teaching at our local college, this one hit home. I use Flickr for my photo repository. So it is nice to see new feature showing up in this service since I haven’t seen to many in the last year.
Flickr adds to sharing options, now easier to share photos across the Web

It sure is nice to see some new developer action over at Flickr. The relatively slow-moving photo-sharing service has just announced a new sharing update, which consists of several new and easy ways to embed or link to your photos:
So the thought came to me that this is nice but what could be implemented to improve the experience:
- Photo comments made on Flickr would also be shown on the shared item in Facebook.
- Post comments made on the shared item would also be available on Flickr.
- Multiple authors – One pool. One of the biggest problems I have with my clients. Many photographers, one common pool to associate them with.
Either way, Flickr is a great tool to use to keep all your photos. It’s worth a good look at if your in the market to implement such a capability.
