Flickr Hacks

Probably there will be loads of links to this site over the next few days/weeks/months as people find the story, but this story does illustrate the difference between sites and what distinguishes them from competitors. Flickr has spawned a whole raft of related sites that offer extended functionality to the general features and tools that Flickr offers. Whether this is by accident or on purpose by Flickr, these 10 “hacks” only add further traffic to the Flickr site. I have yet to see 10 hacks for, say, Zooomr or other photo sharing sites. This is what makes Flickr the number one photo sharing site (whether we like it or not). I guess it also helps that the writer of the article is a Flick advocate 😉

    This open API (and the tools that come as a result) make Flickr very useful. Some other companies offer similar things (Smugmug for one).

    I tried and tried to get a Zooomr API key, it took me under 5 minutes to get a Flickr API key. I’m just moving all my photos over now and changing links on my (photo)blog.
