Video on Flickr?

Video on Flickr?

Originally uploaded by heather

Yes, that’s right, video is now live on Flickr. How much video? 90 seconds, but hey, it’s a start. Their term is long photos. Me, I’m going to read up on the how and the what and see about putting some video up.
You, get hot, let me see you bring it big on video!

Simis is hosting the first Austin Flickr Support Group right here in her house! It’s tough with all of us cruising Flickr and commenting at the same time. Lots of fun, and great shot Simis.

Flickr Video Beta Coming Soon

Dan Farber, CNET News,  brings us the scoop here. He’s found out that Flickr Video Beta should debut next month.

Will Flickr Video replace Yahoo Video?

“Flickr Video will not replace Yahoo Video, unlike Yahoo Photos, which was folded into Flickr. The audience for Flickr is different, Kakul Srivastava, director of product management at Flickr, told me. She used the term “authenticity” to convey the esprit de corps of the Flickr photo community, which numbers more than 23 million contributors.”

I’m excited about the Flickr Video Beta even if it replaced Yahoo Video and/or competed with YouTube.  If Yahoo can bring the same ease of use and community that Flickr Photo has, then they’ll be on the right track.

Let’s keep our eyes open on this one folks, and if you snag an invite before me, be sure to share.

Shashi, a social media guru from up in D.C. is down in SxSWi this weekend.  And from his pictures, he’s having a blast!

I hear he’s rubbing elbows with another friend, Liz Strauss, of SOBCon and Successful Blog.

If you are hanging out down there and have a minute, how about visiting his photo set and tagging them.
