How to Find Your Flickr RSS Feed (and why that is important)

There is no shortage of places to share and interact with photos. From Snapchat to Instagram to Vine, every few months a new photo app launches (or is scooped up by a bigger fish). And for good reason. There appears to be an ever increasing supply of people taking and sharing images and videos.  According to Pew Research Center Internet Project, 62% of internet users have shared or curated a photo or video. We’ll show you how to use your Flickr RSS feed to share your images across Twitter, Facebook and more.

Flickr, created in 2004, which was one of the first social photo sharing services to launch, was later sold to Yahoo! in 2005 for $35M. It is still a significant photo sharing app in today’s crowded marketplace with more than 8 billion photos from more than 87 million users. More than 3.5 million new images are uploaded daily.
