>I was really excited to wake up this morning to realize that Flickr had made some serious changes on their age-old website. This new appearance is exactly what they should have done a long long time ago in order to serve their loyal fans, like me, in a more engaging, interesting and versatile manner. I am loving the new look despite the fact that it is not highly original anymore – given the notion that after Pinterest emerged, many websites went into copying the style.
However, I am happy that this change makes the photographs uploaded on Flickr look so much more professional. Also, it eases the website scrolling considerably. It is not infinite scrolling like on Tumblr but the current website does surely display a greater amount of photos than previously, not to mention how this all affect usability of the website. Actually, when previously the photographs were portrayed against white background, they can now be viewed easily against black background. This option is commonly seen as a more impressive way of showing pictures since not only does it make the photos stand out from the background better but it also makes justice for the colors. Eventually, it seems like Flickr is actually thinking about its users! Hurray! I am loving the new site. What do you think? Did Flickr pull it off?
