The second task is to find a social media site and write a short review about the site. I have chosen the “Flicker”. “Flicker is an online photo repository, it’s now part of Yahoo, it is an incredibly popular site for sharing photos and creating galleries. It also acts as a neat resource for finding Creative Commons images for use on blogs and other sites.” David, (2010).

“According to this Yahoo Flicker advertising pitch page, there are currently 51 million registered Flicker members.” Thomas, (2011). Although yahoo doesn’t disclose active accounts, but if I guess I’d speculate somewhere between 10-20 million and I could totally be wrong on that. Many people don’t have Flicker account but visit the page to find the stock pictures.
I have chosen this social media because I have a Flicker account and I love the site more than Instagram and twitter. On this site, I can browse the different photographer work and it inspires me to get out and take pictures. Also, I can share my pictures who are similar passionate like me.
