Flickr is one of the most popular photo sharing websites used by millions of users across the globe.
Flickr supports a good number of common as well as advanced features of Photo sharing but when it comes to social sharing of Flickr photos, users have to look for alternative solutions.
This is because Flickr’s social sharing gear was limited and did not provide a full featured solution to share Flickr Photos, groups, sets and photo streams on Facebook, Twitter and other social media networks or websites. You had to rely on third party photo sharing services like Dropico, Showzey and so on.
However, there is some good news – Flickr has recently added cool new features for sharing Flickr photos on WordPress, Blogger, Facebook, Twitter and other social networking websites.
Now you can upload photos to your Flickr account and instantly share the photo link on other blogging platforms or micro blogging sites. Another neat thing is that now you can share individual photos from your Flickr Photo stream which was earlier limited to sets, groups or Photostreams only and not a single photo from your Flickr account.
Another major improvement is the ability to share Private Flickr photos with selected or all Facebook friends. Your Flickr photos which are private can be posted to your Facebook account and you can instantly let selected Facebook friends view or download that particular photo. This was not possible earlier.
The third addition is however surprising. Anyone browsing Flickr photos can share any photo from Flickr to Facebook, without having to log in to their Flickr accounts.
As it turns out, you don’t necessarily be logged in to your Flickr account to share a random public photo of any Flickr user, you can simply pull down the sharing toolbar on top of the Flickr photo and post it to Facebook, Tumblr or Blogger.
