Flickr is also a web services suite and an online community web 2.0 application.It is a famous website for users to share personal photographs. Flickr provides both private and public image storage. Its popularity has been increased by its innovative online community tools which allow photos to be tagged.

Flickr allows to categorize images by use of keywords “tags”, wich enables searchers to find images concerning a certain topic.

Flickr also allows users to categorize their photos into “sets”, namely groups of photos that fall under the same heading.Finally, Flickr offers a fairly comprehensive web-service API that allows programmers to create applications that can perform almost any function a user on the Flickr site can do.
