Yahoo Photos and Flickr may grow closer
Yahoo may build links between Yahoo Photos and Flickr, though it has no plans to consolidate the photo-sharing services.
"There are no plans to merge Yahoo Photos and Flickr," said Will Aldrich, Yahoo Photos director. "But there are exciting integration opportunities." Aldrich declined to speculate on ways the two could be linked.
Although Yahoo Photos and Flickr are run independently of each other, their respective teams collaborate and share ideas, he said. Evidence of this is the photo tagging and sharing features that Flickr popularized and that are now being incorporated into Yahoo Photos, he said.
