Before today I never really realised what Flickr is all about and what the benefit it has for libraries and educational institutions. So I decided to write a short post on the benefits of Flickr.
[Chia, M., Mislove, A., & Gummadi, K. P.] Flickr is a photo sharing site that allows you to link your photos to your Facebook and Twitter accounts. It also allows you to find friends, join groups and share your photos with family. Privacy issues on Flickr concerning photos are covered very well and allow you go create links and tags to each photo. If you want to investigate Flickr, further click on the link [FAQ]
The main benefits that I can see Flickr has are:
- Access to historical photos collections from National and State Libraries
- Provide archival service for State and National collections
- A cheaper way for family and friends to share their photo collections
- Family history resources
- Provide access for Teachers and Librarians to a large photo resource

I am now a fan of your flickr photostream album. Adorable dogs!
Thank you for your feedback! I am working away with one of my dogs sleep next to me with other lying near the heater!
