Flickr Ignites Interest Flame

November 23, 2010

Flickr, the online photo hosting website, takes what they already have, photos from around the world, to create their own blog.

The site provides members free photo storage. These photos are then used (potentially) in the sites blog.

Each day, flickr pics a theme and finds photos from members that pertain to that. These themes are mostly random, but occasionally pertinent.

For example, November is sometimes referred to as “no-shave November” or “movember” (mo- being short of moustache). Flickr highlighted examples of outrageous moustaches.


Anyone who is a member of the site at least has a simple interest in photography, they share their photos! The company’s blog is great because it brings together excellent photography for members (and non-members) to view.

Credit is given where credit is due, and photos are cited to their members at the end of the post.

Although not doing much by way of social responsibility, Flickr’s blog DOES spark interest, and it uses resources already available to them.

What a great way to highlight the novice photographer!

User input combined with corporate reaction and feedback makes this a great PR tool for Flickr.

I might even think of switching to Flickr with my photos (above) from Shutterfly for this!… Maybe. But certainly for now, the blog is something I want to check up on every few days just to see some beautiful photography. šŸ™‚
