FLICKR GROUPS: NEW JUSTIFIED VIEW, API METHODS, AND DIRECT ADD FROM UPLOADR
Added On:6/7/2012 3:31:00 PM
Yahoo! India has announced the launch of ‘Justified view’ feature for Groups on Flickr. In addition to that it also introduced ‘API Methods’ and direct upload of photographs on the Groups through Uploadr.
The new ‘Justified’ layout to Flickr Groups, eliminates the white space for a more visually stunning arrangement of photos. A new side bar provides information on the Group, including the latest discussion topics. In addition, people will now be able to add photos to Groups from the new Uploadr.
Justified view allows users to browse 1.2 billion photos in Flickr groups. This feature had initially appeared on Photos from your Contacts and then on Favorites. Effective today it will be available on Groups also. Flickr has also created a sidebar that makes the entire Groups experience more interactive and simpler to navigate. Now, as the users will scroll through the photos in a Group Pool, the sidebar will persistently give the context onto what the group is about. The view also shows the most recent discussions happening on the groups and highlights the top tags along with the top contributors.
NEW API METHODS OPEN UP POSSIBILITIES FOR APPS TO USE FLICKR GROUPS
The new API methods will enable users to interact with group discussions such as reading topics and replies, and posting to the group discussions. It also helps them to join or leave a group. For more information on these new methods visit Flickr’s API documentation page.
DIRECTLY UPLOAD YOUR PHOTOS INTO GROUPS
This feature enables the users to directly upload photos to the groups within the new Flickr Uploadr. By clicking on "Add to Group" option in the editing panel consumers can access their existing groups and quickly submit the photograph to the group which is done along with the upload on the photo-stream.
The new Flickr Uploadr, which was launched recently, enables simpler, easier, and faster upload of photographs on Flickr.
Flickr is a key component of Yahoo!’s overall product strategy and the photo-sharing site continues to develop rich experiences across multiple devices and platforms.
