Automatically Post Foursquare Photos To Your Flickr Account

Sharing photos from one social networking site to another is such a tedious procedure.

There may be a whole bunch of social sites where you have an account and the worst thing is that every social network has it’s own circle of friends with whom you might want to share photos, pictures and videos. Your Facebook account has one set of friends while your Flickr account has another set of friends and it is really boring as well as time consuming to upload the same photos to all the social sites one by one.

Sure there are aggregating services like Dropico, Showzey who allow you to upload the same photos on multiple social sites like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Flickr. But then again, you have to create an account with them, remember another username and password combination and maintain the account for bulk photo uploads to multiple sites like FourSquare, Flickr, Facebook and so on.

Automatically Upload Photos From FourSquare To Flickr

A very such similar service is which allows you to share Foursquare photos with Flickr friends.

Share Flickr Photos On FourSquare

Setting up FlickSquare for auto posting Foursquare photos to Flickr account is extremely simple. Go to the site, hit the big “Authorize” button and connect your FourSquare and Flickr accounts with OAuth. There is no need to sign up or register for an account.

Once the permissions have been granted, the site goes to work on it’s own and cross posts any Foursquare uploads straight to your Flickr photo stream.

Previously, we discussed how one can share Flickr photos on other social sites like Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Blogger, WordPress and Tumblr. Now if you are a very active Foursquare user and want to sync all uploads from Foursquare to Flickr, is just the app you won’t regret using.

There are a couple of downsides.

First, you won’t be able to select the Flickr photo set where Foursquare photos will be uploaded. Every photo that you share on your Foursquare account will also be posted on your Flickr public album. Hence, the privacy feature is not very extended and if you are the type of person who uploads a lot of private photos on FourSquare, we advise you not to use the service. This is because all those photos will be accessible on your Flickr timeline, which defeats the overall purpose of controlling privacy of Flickr and FourSquare photos.
