Well, it’s happened. Yohoo has given Flickr users one year to create or migrate to a Yahoo User ID or they’ll be locked out of Flickr.
Flickr: “… we will be migrating all independent Flickr accounts to Yahoo!’s network in 2006. At that time, if you have not done so already, you will be asked to create a Yahoo! ID (or link your account to your Yahoo! ID if you already have one) in order to continue using your account.”
What’s this mean for those who don’t want to use Yahoo’s login schema? Well, you’re out of luck, I guess. Me, I wonder if this means Flickr will be another free service to SBC Yahoo DSL users like Yahoo! 360.
