Social Media 101 – Flickr

This is one in a series of articles on understanding the basics of social media and social networking.  The church certainly cannot afford to sleep on these social media tools if it is to thrive creatively in the 21st century.

Flickr is an image and video hosting website, as well as an online user community. In addition to being a popular website for users to share and embed personal photos, Flickr is widely used by blog writers to host images that they embed in their blogs and other social media.  As of October 2009, it claims to host more than 4 billion images. Among other things, users of Flickr can edit, tag, and comment on images.

God Bless,
