Yahoo buys Flickr

Apparently the worst kept secret on the net has been confirmed and Yahoo! has bought Flickr. Neil links to a post by Jeremy Zawodny who works for Yahoo! giving his thoughts on the announcement. For those uninitiated with Flickr, its a photo sharing service where you can store large amounts of photos and easily tag/organise and share ’em. I’d be wary of Yahoo’s motives as they seem to have mauled Geocities when they bought them but I’m not an expert on the area. Heres hoping that Flickr will still retain the nice sense of community and ease of use I’ve become accustomed to. 🙂
