So I did an interesting thing. I went to flickr and signed up for a new account using a browser I never use with no cookies enabled. I setup the new account and signed out. When I went to sign in, it took me to the yahoo sign in page. Near the bottom of the sign in box are links to sign in with facebook and google.

I'm not sure if they work because I'm sure facebook and google are associated with my current flickr account in some way but it seems the option is still there. WOrking or not I couldn't tell though. Maybe someone else wants to take that further?

See reply #37 on page 3. In short, it does not let you sign in with non Yahoo accounts.

Yeah. That's kind of my thought. One thing I think a lot of people lose track of when being concerned about their private information is just how useless much of it is. As long as my bank accounts, investment portfolio, and credit card accounts aren't involved I could really care less if they know where I live, when my birthday is or even how many divorces I've had. If they can use that information to improve the quality of my junk mail, then so be it. I'd rather have an ad in my inbox for a new lens than for the latest deal on Viagra.

I completely agree with you, KF. Many people are paranoid about nothing.

As far as Flickr goes, it used to be a worthwhile site. I would use it extensively when researching photo locations and planning photo trips. It was a great research tool. Now, with the "new" interface, pages take far too long to load, which makes it quite inefficient as a research tool.

I suppose if one wants to display images, or look at other people's images, it is somewhat useful, but the extremely long load times make it rather useless for research, when you are trying to view 100's of search results per minute.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".
