Image Sharing

Flickr is right now, the largest image and video hosting website, and online community platform. It was founded in February 2004 by Ludicorp as one of the first Web 2.0 services. At first, it was mostly a chat room with space to store images found on the Web, but it soon started evolving as a gallery for photos taken by the users themselves. Recently the number of uploaded photos hit 3 billion. Flickr users can create profiles with personal information, upload photos to show or advertise them on the site, or to be linked to a blog, forum or another site. In 2008 the possibility off adding videos was added Features of the site include: organising content by topics or locations, tag cloud, thematic groups, or sets, privacy settings, content filtering, commenting, adding testimonials to other users' sites, creating groups of friends, adding photos to 'favorite' groups, flagging offensive content. There is a possibility of ordering prints from the galleries and create credit cards, announcements, invitations, mini cards etc, with favourite images. In the end of 2008 Flickr started using OneStreetMap, and users can add their photos of locations and add them to the map of an area. The basic membership is free, but users who require additional options and larger storage space, can purchase the pro account for $24.95.
