What is Flickr?

Flickr is a photo and video hosting service as well as an online community based in the United States. It was developed in Canada and is headquartered there. It was launched by Ludicorp in 2004 and quickly became a popular platform for amateur and professional photographers to share high-resolution images.


The History of Flickr

Flickr was started in 2004 by Stewart Butterfield, co-founder of Slack, and Caterina Fake, a serial digital entrepreneur, and was acquired by Yahoo in 2005. Yahoo shuttered its own photo service in 2007, forcing all of its users to migrate to Flickr or risk losing their data.




You have a Flickr profile, just like you have a Facebook profile. This dashboard is a place where you and others may view and/or manage your material.



Consider galleries to be similar to Facebook's "picture albums." You can upload other users' media to your gallery, which is a fundamental difference between Facebook albums and Flickr galleries. If you admire a certain photographer's work and want to include it on your page, you may do so by adding them to your gallery. A gallery can only contain 50 photographs or videos.



Your photostream is a private collection of material that you own. If your photographs and videos are set to public, other users can see what you've uploaded by visiting your profile. If your media is set to private, only you and those you've given permission to see it will be able to see it.
