Flickr Face Lift Reminiscent of Facebook Layout, Takes a Run at Google

Did anyone else notice that Flickr’s redesign propelled it in the direction of looking exactly like Facebook would look if images were the only content type?

An EPA social media success: ongoing participatory photo project

I get asked regularly for successful examples of using social media, so here’s one. Forty years ago, EPA hired photographers to capture our world, with a special focus on environmental issues.

Recovery.gov on Flickr – Pretty cool

Check out Recovery.gov on Flickr. http://www.flickr.com/groups/recoverydotgov/ People taking photos from Recovery funded projects I think if promoted right this has mass appeal. I’ve driven by hundreds of ARRA projects and I think it would be cool to have people take photos and submit them to Flickr and other sources. Could also be used as recovery… Read more »

Sweet GovTweets 06.12.09

Good afternoon! This is a little late today, we have been having storms. Well, truth be told, the storms had nothing to do with it 😉 Again today, the most RT’d post was “Army told not to block Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, etc.” Remember when soldiers played pool?
