Automatically Share Flickr Photos with Facebook Friends

Flickr has just announced a new feature that allows you to connect your Flickr account to your Facebook account to automatically update your Facebook friends when you upload new photographs. The above screenshot published by Flickr shows what the resulting Facebook status updates look like. To get started, visit the Sharing & Extending section of your Flickr account settings to connect your accounts in a few easy steps. For those of you who are already using the Flickr app on Facebook, Flickr recommends turning off that app and using this new feature instead.

    What the… I've been using this feature for the better part of a year, how is it new?

  • flickrinder

    this was already available; it did update facebook automatically sometimes, but most of the time, you have to tell facebook to check your flickr updates.

  • Gary

    It's been doing this forever!!

  • Jennifer

    Do not use this application! It only posts single photos you upload as one Facebook update, so if you bulk upload 100 photos on Flickr, that means you will have 100 individual Facebook updates for each photo, thus spamming all your friends.
