Flickr iOS Update Brings Hashtags

Yahoo’s photosharing platform Flickr has updated its iOS app adding hashtags to the mix. Now Flickr users can add a hashtag in a photo’s title or description, and search by hashtags by tapping directly on the hashtag.

The update also includes Flickr’s own hashtag #FlickrFriday, a weekly photo contest hosted by the photo sharing network. Essentially every week, the site poses a photo-taking challenge with different themes and users can participate by adding #FlickrFriday to their photos.

Adding hashtags seems to be Flickr’s way of keeping up with the other photosharing apps out there like Instagram and Snapchat. In December, Flickr ¬†released a redesigned iPhone app which included the addition of Instagram-like filters that users can add to their photos to get a vintage look.¬†(Via Mashable).
