Flickr Adding Video; Why They Need To

Flickr Logo

We all know that Yahoo is going to update their video site and push it to compete with YouTube. Well, they are also going to be adding video capabilities to Flickr, which was only for static photos to date.

While many see the juicy news point in all of this being that Yahoo is playing catch-up to YouTube/Google and other video sharing sites that have made it big, I feel the bigger picture here is that video is here and here to stay, and the Net, and users’ comm lines can now generally support it. Even the smallest of sites will need to support video in some fashion. Not having it will mean falling to the wayside.
