Flickr Makes Finding Friends A Snap

Flickr wants its users to make more connections and has launched a new tool that simplifies the process: Find your friends.

It’s a search engine that looks for Flickr users you may know across five platforms: Flickr itself, Yahoo Mail, Gmail, Hotmail, and Facebook.


The new tool is accessible via a “People you may know” widget on the Flickr home page, or via a link in the “Contacts” dropdown menu. Recommendations are based on your contacts and the Flickr users they know.

In many ways, it’s reminiscent of Twitter’s ongoing efforts to foster more connections between users. (Facebook has similar friending tools, too, of course.)

If you don’t want to be found in this new search tool, Flickr says it will obey the “hide your profile from public searches” setting.
