Everybody wants to share those perfect moments with their friends and loved ones. Every picture tells a separate story and with the technology of internet, sharing information across the globe has never been easier.
Various applications have been developed to facilitate people in sharing photos across networks. Here we use “Flickr” which is an online photo and video album sharing platform where you can fill up the gallery with tons of photos. Furthermore, you can even embed Flickr gallery to your website. The Flickr comment allows you to have a conversation about the image with the people whom you have shared the image with. This sharing network has certainly expanded over the years and now you can even find many applications of Flickr for android, iPhone and other smartphones.
