Threadwatch have been talking about the rumous that Yahoo! bought Flickr since Om Malik mentioned it last month. Now it's confirmed by Y!'s Jeremy Zawodny.

To the Flickr Team

Congrats and welcome to the Yahoo family. It's a big one but you're going to be a very big part of it. You have a lot of fans here--probably even more after today. :-)

I know Jeremy's been a big fan of Flickr the social photo sharing site that uses folksonomies and tagging to order and share pics amongst users, for some time. It's clear that he can't quite contain his enthusiasm for the buy in his post heh...

He talks about some obvious things like Yahoo 360 that Tim still hasn't given me an invite to! and says that many parts of Yahoo! will be "flickrized".

This will only go to strengthen Y's good standing in the blogosphere i think, and with their record in RSS integration, i'd say that if anyone could do a good job of treating Flickr right, it's them.

We'll wait and see, there's ample opportunity to cock it right up aswell, hope the dont...
