“Video on Flickr is an extension of what Flickr is already doing with more than 2 billion photos worldwide – providing a place where people capture and share life’s daily moments,” said Kakul Srivastava, general manager of Flickr at Yahoo.

“Digital media has led to a new behavior emerging in the market and people are much more likely to shoot short video clips, essentially “long photos,” with their digital still cameras and mobile phones. There is a great resonance between this new category of content and with the kind of authentic, personal moments already being shared on Flickr,” Srivastava added.
