We already know that there are good (even better!) substitute for YouTube. Flickr,the photo sharing site, has also joined the trend! Flickr has announced they’re adding video playback capabilities to their popular photo service. Clips are limited to 90 seconds and 150mb, what they’re calling ‘long photos’ as they refer to them. Unlike YouTube, where videos from professional media and amateurs alike are uploaded for the world to view, Flickr members can limit who the videos are shared with, through privacy settings. Sharing digital photographs online is now commonplace, with Flickr users having uploaded 2bn worldwide. However, video sharing is less lucrative, with 55% of internet users just playing their video clips on their cameras or on their PCs – without sharing the footage over the internet.
