Flickr recently announced that its customers will not be able to sign into accounts using Facebook or Google effective June 30, 2014. Flickr customers will be forced to link their Flickr accounts through Yahoo. If you don’t have a Yahoo account, you will have to sign up for one in order to be able to continue using the service.
Flickr went through a major overhaul in 2013 with a redesign and policy changes. Flickr offers larger storage space (a terabyte) than previously, and uploading is easier. Collections are groups of sets that were previously available only to Pro users, but now available to FREE customers.
This latest removal stems from Yahoo announcing plans back in March to end Google and Facebook features completely. Flickr was simply the next step in this plan.
Starting on July 1st, users of photo and video service Flickr will no longer have the option to log in with their details from Google or Facebook.
The social networking giant Facebook dominates the third-party sign up/sign in support in the mobile market with a total of 62-percent while the search engine giant Google got 26 percent share, and Twitter with 6 percent. Yahoo was outshine by a social networking services’ accounts with only 4 percent.
