Flickr Shares Personalised Videos

Yahoo has announced that Flickr is going to start hosting video content.

The photo sharing site already has over 25 million members who have collectively uploaded over 2 billion photos and now they want your moving-photos.

According to Yahoo, the survey results amongst Flickr members showed that most videos captured today are essentially "long photos"- short clips that are captured on digital still cameras or mobile phones rather than long format video taken by traditional video camera.

While YouTube and other video-sharing sites are immensely popular, most of the content are re-broadcast clips from TV shows or popular adverts. The video equivalent for the personal, authentic moments that are the hallmark of photos found on Flickr is actually pretty tough to find.
