Flickr is migrating their content to Yahoo ID, you know, Yahoo’s login name that you can use for their services (including mail). Duncan Riley isn’t too happy about this, but he won’t have much choice in the long run, now will he?
Flickr told their users via e-mail, another service acquired by Yahoo is doing it on their blog. MyBlogLog, the community for bloggers, have said so. Perhaps they heard the cry of tens of thousands of Flickr users not wanting to accept the fact that Yahoo owns their precious service. That’s the problem with tight communities â€“ they can rally behind you, but also against you if you take a bad turn. Although I sincerely doubt that changing to the Yahoo ID is a groundshaking problem for neither Flickr nor MyBlogLog.
And Dunc, I’m sorry you can’t get your name. You should have been born in Sweden, that makes it a whole lot easier!
