Facebook has done yet again improvements on its Photo feature. And this time, the social network smacked Flickr right into its face.

Facebook is not just a social network but one of the largest photo-sharing sites in the world. Now let’s see their competitiveness in terms of the photo features.

Upgrades are essential to everyone. And now they are doing it again. The latest news not to mention a trending topic is the inclusion of Hi-Res photos, photo-download link, bulk tagging options and this gorgeous lightbox interface. Lightbox reminds us of the feaatures available now on Flckr.

The British Monarchy Joins Flickr and Still Misses the Point

Written on July 29, 2010 by Rudfer Tyron

Interestingly, the British Monarchy has employed social media in the recent years. What is curious is how this institution has never gotten fully into the social part of it all.

This is not the first bid of the British Monarchy, an institution steeped in its own traditions, in crossing a digital threshold. Way back two years ago, it created a profile on YouTube. Its Twitter remains on working status, servicing a little over 50,000 followers. And just recently, hundreds of Royal Family photos have been launched on to Flickr.
