Erstwhile photo-sharing powerhouse Flickr is getting a major redesign soon, Betabeat reports. Flickr‘s head project manager Markus Spiering revealed the updated interface to Betabeat this week—it includes a new upload interface and a dynamic tiled photo view.
Yahoo! bought Flickr in 2005 but generally let it languish—when video and mobile uploads were exploding elsewhere, Flickr stood idly by. With Tumblr and Pinterest‘s dominance in modern photo social networking and Facebook’s general ubiquity, does Flickr still have a place in the market, even with a flashy new interface? Adrianne Jeffries at Betabeat came up with a few ideas for Flickr takeovers that could revive the site.
