60+ Tools To Enhance Your Flickr Experience
Being a popular online image platform, Flickr has enabled Internet users to manage and share digital photos easily as long as there’s an Internet connection.

My Friend Flickr: A Match Made in Photo Heaven (Library of Congress) If you’re reading this, then chances are you already know about Web 2.0. Even if you don’t know the term itself, you’re one of millions worldwide who are actively creating, sharing or benefiting from user-generated content that characterizes Web 2.0 phenomena. As a communicator, I want to expand the reach of the Library and access to our magnificent collections as far and wide as possible.

The project is beginning somewhat modestly, but we hope to learn a lot from it. The real magic comes when the power of the Flickr community takes over. We’re also very excited that, as part of this pilot, Flickr has created a new publication model for publicly held photographic collections called ??? And with that, gentlemen (and gentlewomen), start your tagging!

Priceless Images: Getting Started with Flickr They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Some images are priceless, capturing a moment, a person, or an event in time. One of the most important things we can do with our online presence is to take advantage of the graphical nature of the Web and the interactive nature of many Web 2.0 sites to make a big splash with pictures–images of our libraries, our programs, and ourselves. A cost-effective way to do this (and one that yields some benefits for outreach and interaction) is to use Flickr–that Yahoo!-owned, image-sharing community site you may have heard about recently. Using Flickr in Libraries In early August, I spoke at the Northeast Kansas Library System Tech Day. Educate yourself, your staff, your board of trustees, and governing agencies about social sites, like flickr, and the issues surrounding them. It’s inspiring stuff. It might seem overwhelming at first, but worry not–the best thing you can do is take some time and explore. Ten Ways to Use Flickr A Few Words About Money

Flickr Releases New Geographical Features Yahoo’s popular photo-sharing site Flickr will release on Monday the two new geography-related features we reported on a month ago: Flickr Places and a new world map. While we have not yet had the opportunity to test these new releases, the Places feature appears to be the most substantial of the two. Flickr has chosen 100,000 locations across the globe (such as cities, states, countries, and regions) and created pages to display photos taken at them. So, for example, if you want to check out photos of Moscow, you can visit a Places page for that city and see a collection of photos from there. Flickr already has an interactive map for discovering geo-tagged photos taken at various locations around the world. These two improvements will be available to all Flickr users and in eight languages. We recently reported that Flickr had passed the two billion stored photos mark.
