Overview about the flickr.
that was created by Ludicorp
in 2004 and acquired by
in 2005. In addition to being a
popular website for users to share and embed personal
photographs, the service is widely used by

2011 that Flickr had a total of 51 million registered members and
80 million unique visitors.

was hosting more than 6 billion images and this number continues
to grow steadily according to reporting sources.
Photos and videos
can be accessed from Flickr without the need to register an
account but an account must be made in order to upload content
onto the website. Registering an account also allows users to
create a profile page containing photos and videos that the user
has uploaded and also grants the ability to add another Flickr user
as a contact.
