Got a Facebook Account? You Can Log Into Flickr!

Do you want to sign into Flickr, the incredibly popular image and video hosting site, but you don’t want to go through the trouble of setting up an account? There are alternatives, like signing in with your Google account or your Facebook account.

The fact that you can sign in with your Google account isn’t new. Back in October, the Flickr team announced that it introduced OpenID on Flickr, thus allowing people to use their Google account to sign-up for a new Flickr account. The fact that you can sign in with your Facebook account is news. The Flickr team announced it yesterday, the 20th of January.


“Today, we’d like to welcome our newest partner and are pleased to announce that you can now also log-in to Flickr with your Facebook account! And that’s not all! We’re also rolling out with a few new improvements to make signing into Flickr easier for all our members. Users can now setup logging in to their existing Flickr accounts through either Google or Facebook in addition to their Yahoo! ID. Members that use Facebook or Google as their login ID can now also start sharing their public photo uploads to Facebook,” announced Product Marketing Manager at Flickr, Denise Leung.

I have to say that this is not exactly surprising. Flickr, in case you don’t already know that, is owned by Yahoo!. And earlier this week Yahoo! announced starting with the 20th of January, it is opening its network to 3rd party ID-sign-in options with Facebook and Google.

“As a place that over 600 million people visit every month, Yahoo! strives every day to bring you the content, information, tools and meaningful social connections relevant to you from across the Web. It’s our belief that by continuing to open up the Yahoo! network to third-party IDs, we can help more folks join in the fun and create exciting, more personalized and inclusive online experiences. So sign-in and enjoy the new fast pass to your personal Web on Yahoo!,” said Yahoo!.
