Flickr Plays Tag

FlickrLogo.jpgFlickr finally added the ability to tag people in photographs with the introduction of its People in Photos feature, TechCrunch reported.

People in Photos allows users to select pictures and start typing names, at which point Flickr contacts are searched for the complete name, according to TechCrunch, which added that the opt-out process is far better than that of Facebook, as users can untag themselves and opt out of being tagged in individual photos, as well as being able to set who can tag people in photos they shared.

TechCrunch added that being tagged in photos will show up in users’ activity streams, and profiles were revamped to display pictures that users are tagged in.
