Yahoo to remove Facebook and Google sign-ins from Flickr after June 30

Flickr users who log in with a Google or Facebook ID will no longer do so after June 30.

This is the consequence of a decision announced last March by Yahoo who wants to terminate access to its services via a connection to a Google or Facebook ID. Flickr users are warned that after June 30, the option to connect to a Google or Facebook account will be deleted.

Another reading of this warning is that, as of this date, they must necessarily use a Yahoo ID to login. This means it is necessary to create a Yahoo account.

From the point of view of Yahoo, these maneuvers are intended to help provide users with a "personalized experience" for. But it is also to take some control and dispense with the intervention of authentication competing systems. Besides customization is also associated with advertising.

Flickr page

Formerly, such identifiers allowed to type in their substantial user base in order to increase website traffic of Yahoo. With Marissa Mayer at the helm of Yahoo, the orientation has been changed.

Services have been delivered to date like email or just Flickr for sharing photos, several purchases were made like Tumblr and more with many startups in the mobile sector that has also seen changes to various Yahoo applications.
