Facebook free photo now rival better than Flickr

Facebook is promising its users more beautiful photos. Users will now be able to upload high-resolution images to the site, a new viewer will improve the experience of browsing images, and the process of tagging images has also been simplified. With more than 100 million images uploaded to the site every day, that’s an awful lot of beautiful photos.

This means the quality will rival that of Flickr with none of the restrictions of the free Flickr account.

Obviously there are caveats like have your security setting in place if you don't want others seeing or sharing your photos.

Sheeple!

Yeah, those security settings are hopeless. It's amazing how easy it is to have a look at anybodies personal photographs on Facebook.

The 500+ million members don't really give a damn, any wonder you're depressed if you worry about little things like that. I already said there were caveats, so if you don't like it don't use it. It's still a lot better than Flick who restrict how much you can upload each month with half the res or charge to upload more or have higher res.

Flickr Pro is about 20 dollars for two years with no limits at all - trivial amount of money for a much better service (and a robust and easy to use set of privacy settings)

Does anyone honestly believe that Facebook with billions of photos on it, is trawling through them and will pick out your photos to sell? If you do you have a very high opinion of yourselves and are most likely delusional. Anything uploaded onto the internet regardless of where it is uploaded is out there forever once uploaded. Flickr have a deal with Getty Images where they sell user photos. Facebooks terms and conditions are only there to protect themselves from litigation. We've all seen the photos in the papers taken from Facebook. It generally only happens if your famous or a criminal.

And if Flickr is so great, then why don't they respond and make their pro service free for all?

Flickr is genreally about quality photos, sharing with people you don't know, whereas Facebook is more about taking pics of you're drunk friend peeing against a wall on a night out.

100mb is enough for most users but as already stated if you do want more it costs very little, if you don't think it's worth it then you're just probably not into photography enough.

You can upload every photo you've ever taken with Flickr and keep it in it's orignal size, meaning no compression. Facebook will compress the photo making it look nasty. Would rather pay the extra £16.
