Yahoo Photos/ Flickr/ Yahoo 360

Very odd goings on; I’ve changed my 360 blast twice this week but it keeps going back to the old one.

Also a while ago, I had problems with my Yahoo Photos account as it doesn’t appear to be totally compatible with Flickr on yahoo360. Basically the Yahoo photos just disappeared, the Flickr ones remain, which is a shame as I have lots of photos in lots of different albums that I’d be happy to share on my Yahoo 360 page, I just don’t want them all on Flickr.

Anyway, I now hear that Yahoo photos is being closed down on Sept 20 2007 and all their resources are being put into Flickr, which of course they own. As I say it’s a shame, I have been very happy with Yahoo mail, it’s the best and they are just expanding it to Unlimited storage ~ I thought this would mean unlimited photos.

I wonder what they are going to do with old accounts? Will they get transfered to Flickr. Will we be able to keep the individual albums we have assembled? I am sure you can transfer them, but it would be a lot of work and I liked the way some of your albums could be public, others private etc. Seems a shame, Flickr somehow seems to provide a rather different type of service; good but different.

Oh well life goes on. I’ve always liked Yahoo360 even with its foibles and just haven’t got around to Myspace or Bebo – leave that for the kids, I’m too old!!

Anyway, in readiness for my forthcoming blog on SPARKLE, I’ve added a photo above from last Friday. It’s been a busy catch-up week after having last week off and I really hope to write another blog and say hello to all my friends soon.
