Flickr to Discontinue Facebook & Google Login after 30 June


Do you use Flickr from your Gmail or Facebook account? If yes, then, be prepared to create a Yahoo ID. Yahoo! will remove the option to sign-in with Facebook and Google account after 30 June. The announcement comes as surprise at a time when most sites are offering the option of social signups to garner more users.

No Facebook & Google for Flickr

If you have been using Google or Facebook account to access Flickr, then, visit https://accounts-flickr.yahoo.com/account/update/email to make the necessary updates.

Before moving ahead, let’s answer some of the most common questions about Flickr update;

Will my photos get deleted if I have been using Facebook or Google to access Flickr?

No. Your Flickr photos will not be deleted in case you have been using Facebook or Google to access the image & video hosting site. Your data is safe. All you need is a Yahoo ID to access your Flickr account.

Do I have to create a new yahoo ID even if I have an old one?

If you already have a Yahoo ID, Flickr will remind or prompt you to log-in with it. In case you don’t have, you can create a new one within minutes.

Will this affect paid services like Flickr Pro?

No. This update will not affect paid services like Flicker Pro

What do I get for using a Yahoo account for Flickr?

Flickr staffs assert that Yahoo account users will get streamlined sign-in experience and dedicated support from Yahoo team. The Flickr experience will improve.

Flickr is prompting users to create Yahoo accounts before 30 June deadline by sending notification emails about the update. Though there is no serious backlash visible in the Help Forum, people who accessed Flickr with Google and Facebook accounts will surely be disappointed.

What do you think is the reason behind this non-conformist update? Is Yahoo trying to build a bigger Yahoo email user base or is it part of something bigger?

Are you happy with the Yahoo’s announcement?

    That’s an interesting choice. I agree that most sites are integrating more services, not cutting back, but my impression is that Yahoo! has been fighting for awhile for relevance and wants users to go through them for accounts. I haven’t used Flickr much but it seems like a cool service from what I have seen, and I like the Yahoo! brand in general! :)
