Week 8: Flickr and YouTube

Hi all,

Welcome to another week of 23 Things! We look at Flickr this week, and follow it up with a look at YouTube. (Choose a quiet time to look at YouTube – hopefully the network will be fast enough to cope!)

Both services allow users to share media – photos (primarily) in the case of Flickr, and videos in the case of YouTube. Many people are now familiar with YouTube as a source of entertainment, but it’s also a good source of educational and promotional materials – the Commoncraft videos that you’ve seen on our 23 Things site come via YouTube!

Flickr is another really useful site for educational and other purposes. Check out their Creative Commons section for images that can be legally used without copyright problems (subject to the conditions explained on the site).

As ever, don’t forget to blog about each of the Things!
