Flickr Helps You to Connect with Friends

I haven’t used this ’s “ you may know” feature yet. If you’re using Flickr, you will see another box there on the sidebar giving you some contact suggestions. It seems wants to make Flickr more social these days.

As a Flickr user, I can find also find friends based on their on my “contact page” at another like Yahoo! , , Windows Live and also . Looks nice? Maybe. Flickr will search all contacts that already inserted in the address book. But, it will depends on how I organize my address book, for example in my Yahoo! Mail or Gmail. My Yahoo! Mail assigned for my Flickr almost has no contacts. It’s simply because I created a Yahoo! account only to signup with Flickr. So, almost nobody in my Yahoo! contact.
What about Gmail? Similar situation I think. Most of my contacts in my Gmail account uses non-Yahoo! services. So, when I tried to use the search feature, it gave me an empty results. Windows Live and Facebook give the same output I think.
