So the Rumors are True- 2 Billion Photos On Flickr

2,000,000,000 is a lot of zeros. Flickr confirmed earlier that it had it’s 2 billionth photo uploaded to the site. The now famous photo was taken by “yukesmooks” in Sydney on November 10th with a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi. Sort of a boring shot if you ask us but to each their own. Flickr stated that 3-5 million new photos are uploaded to the site daily. DAILY! Looks like they will have about 3 billion at the end of the month at that rate ;-)

If you are bored on Friday, you can apparently find various Flickr milestones by typing in the URL http://flickr.com/photo.gne?id=XXXXXXX, and replacing the X’s with the photo number.

When comparing this to other sites, Facebook has 4.1 billion photos on their site. That is a lot of drunk night out shots for one website ;-)
