Flickr Adds Full Facebook Integration

Following on the heels of Yahoo! who announced deeper integration with Facebook into their products, Flickr announced this morning that the company has also rolled out their own integrations with Facebook. Now when Facebook users upload photos to Flickr, they can have updates automatically posted to their stream about images that they’ve made visible to “everyone”.

The announcement from Flickr also emphasized that the new integration leveraged the Yahoo! Updates platform which allows developers “to syndicate user-generated actions” that take place on their website across Yahoo’s numerous properties. This is all part of Yahoo’s push to make their sites more “social”, something that Flickr has been ever since the beginning of their service.

If you happen to be a Flickr user, you can get your Facebook and Flickr accounts linked together immediately by visiting this page.
