What Is Flickr?
Ludicorp, a Vancouver-based company launched Flickr in February 2004. The service emerged out of tools originally created for Ludicorp’s Game Neverending, a web-based massively multiplayer online game. Flickr proved a more feasible project and ultimately Game Neverending was shelved.

In March 2005, Yahoo! acquired Ludicorp and Flickr. During the week of June 28, 2005, all content was migrated from servers in Canada to servers in the United States, resulting in all data being subject to United States federal law.

On April 9, 2008, Flickr began to allow paid subscribers to upload videos, limited to 90 seconds in length and 150MB in size.

Flickr is a way to get your photos and videos to the people who matter to you. And since basic accounts are free, there’s no reason not to explore further :)

Upload from your desktop, send by email, or use your cameraphone. Get rid of red eye, crop a photo, or get creative with fonts and effects! Use collections, sets, and tags to organize your photos and videos. Use groups and privacy controls to share your photos and videos. Share where your photos and videos were taken, and see photos and videos taken near you. You can make stuff from your photos such as sexy cards, photo books, framed prints, Target pick up, DVDs, etc. Get updates from family and friends.
