Some time ago. Flickr changed the design of their photo-hosting service to what is know in the industry, as a JSON platform.
Under most circumstances, this adds a lot more user functionality. However, you must remember that FLICKR by it’s nature is not a bandwidth light site. It’s bandwidth heavy.
All the images come at the cost of the JSON code not functioning at all.
I ceased using the site in July last year.
In CHina it wasn’t possible. Flickr simply doesn’t work in China. I’ve tried it using a VPN.
The functionality was so restricted, that when Paypal put the renewal through this year, I contested it and won on the grounds that it wasn’t ‘fit for purpose‘.
I know many of you photo-sharers out there must have encountered problems.
I missed Flickr and being able to share my photo’s online with friends and family.
In forthcoming blog, I’ll be using Flickr to host the photo’s.
This means they’ll be available to the open source community to manipulate as they please, but otherwise will be no different.
