KEEP CALM AND FLICKR YOUR TUMBLR SHUT
I think it’s ironic that people have been bitching for YEARS about how Flickr hasn’t been updated (It’s behind on the times) and that it needs a facelift and blah, blah, blah. So the moment they start to update and integrate some powerful new tools people start screaming bloody murder and start uploading photos that say FLICKR IS DEAD. I mean really?
Not to mention all this hoohaa about Yahoo buying Tumblr. Um, hello guys… How is this not a GOOD THING? Realize that this is Yahoo’s last chance to stay relevant and you think they’re just going to close it down or “mess it up”. Hell no! They’re going to put everything they got into this platform and you know what that means? We’re finally going to get features and tools that have been long overdue. And if this new Flickr redesign is any clue as to what the future might bring, I’d say we’re in good hands.
Now, you know what would have been scary? If Google or Facebook had bought Tumblr. Since they’re already extremely successful companies I could imagine both of them thinking it’s a good idea to just merge and intergrate the unique tumblr features into their social networks. Ugh. Now that would have sucked.
Your World, in Full Resolution
By Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo!
Photos tell the stories — stories we’re inspired to relive, share with our friends, or capture simply to express ourselves. Collecting these moments is a part of our everyday. Since 2005, Flickr has become synonymous with inspiring imagery. Today, we’re thrilled to take Flickr even further with a beautiful, completely re-imagined experience that puts photos front and center. When it comes to photography, technology and its limits shouldn’t hinder the experience. So we’re also giving our Flickr users one terabyte of space — for free. That’s enough for a lifetime of photos — more than 500,000 original, full-resolution, pixel-perfect, brilliant photos. Flickr users will never have to worry about running out of space.

Flickr’s stunning new desktop design puts photos at the heart of the experience. Built around a new photostream that gives you a vivid and endlessly scrolling gallery, it’s easy to see what your friends are posting and what they’re saying about your photos. And because Flickr has always been about exploring photographs from users around the world, we’ve also created a new slideshow that displays the most spectacular Flickr photos in gorgeous full-screen.
Flickr Android App
With smartphones in our pockets at all times, we’re all photographers on a daily basis. That’s why we’re also excited to launch new version of the Flickr app for Android phones and tablets. Similar to the iPhone app we launched in December, the new Flickr for Android maintains your photos’ original quality, so every image you take, edit, share, or view on your phone or tablet looks spectacular.
Check out the new Flickr starting today, and you can download the Android app in the Google Play store, available in 10 languages worldwide. We hope you’ll agree that we have made huge strides to make Flickr awesome again, and we want to know what you think and how to further improve!
