2. Using Flickr can be an opportunity to get a little glimpse at a moment in a loved ones life, who is maybe just down the street or maybe across the country. Imagine seeing a picture of your little cousin taking his first steps or your friends 16th birthday. Seeing a shot of it is almost like being there. You can comment on pictures and user's pages, become "friends", favorite certain photos or albums, join all sorts of groups, and decide who gets to view your pictures and who doesn't.

Flickr could be used almost anywhere where visual images are needed, analysis images, virtual field trips, visual documentation of school events and student artwork and products, property rights lessons, and many more. Photography students could post their original work (such as my cousin Brianna does), school stores could advertize their products, school events could be "recorded" with pictures and shared for easy access, and the ways that Flickr could be used in business just multipy themselves.
