Happy 5 Billionth, Flickr!


Have you ever wondered how many photos there are lurking amongst the Flickr webs? Well, as of today, there are 5 billion. Yes, really, 5 billion. Woodwards Collage was uploaded by yeoaaron on 18 September 2010.

For the last four years Media Culpa, a public relations and media blog based out of Sweden, has been tracking Flickr’s upload milestones. A basic graph they created shows a steady increase of about one billion photos uploaded per year since 2007. Will that rate of growth stabilise, or increase, do you think?

Anyway. Congratulations to Aaron Yeo and Flickr for reaching this mega-milestone!
