Merry Christmas! What to do with all those photos.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, how ever you celebrate this time of year I hope you having a great time with friends and family.

With that in mind you and your friends and family will be taking a lot of pictures. I'm sure people will be posting on Facebook and Twitter and what ever other social media your on. Have you ever thought  about those pictures you want to share with loved ones but feel like posting them on social media isn't what you wanna do.

Well I've had flickr for a while and I was just browsing around today and ran across this....

Groups. Its a way to share with people. To me its more effective than posting on your timeline on Facebook. Its a way to collaborate on those photos you took at the family Christmas party. I know some people who don't do Facebook or any other social media. So this is a way you can.

The first one Public, anyone can join is more for groups of people that may like the same subject. No for the family to share pictures.

The second one Public, invitation only is like above but you have to be invited to the group. This is for people who don't care if someone else sees the pictures. They just can't join the group and add pictures also.

Lastly is private. This is for those people that don't want anyone but the people they choose to join the group or see the pictures. This option is better than posting them in social media (Facebook, Twitter, G+, etc) so if there is not access given you can't see them. Also the group doesn't show up in searches or display on people's profiles.

One last thing doing this will cause you to have another account if you don't already have an Yahoo ID. I have been with Flickr before Yahoo and I've never had an issue. So if you want to share those Christmas photos to just who you want to show them to. This is a good suggestion for you. Oh and by the way you get 1TB of space free, now how can you beat that.

Have a great Holiday!!
