Flickr made waves back in may when they unveiled the new web design and layout. The overhaul was widely seen as a vast improvement over the previous outdated layout, but many noted that much of the site, including Groups, was not on the new design and was still running the old layout. Today Flickr announced that that is no more…
Groups has been overhauled to bring that section of the site more in line with the rest of the upgrades that were made during the May update. Yahoo had this to say regarding the improved Groups section:
“This new design will make it easier to navigate your group’s content and to submit photos to the group — along with other improvements to the left-hand side bar, we’ve added an additional button for adding photos to reduce scrolling. Your group description also has a new home in the “About” tab, where you’ll find that group’s rules and submission guidelines as well. We preview a segment of your group description below the group name in the menu for more visibility. Finally, the “Discussions” tab presents group discussions in a new format that makes it easier to browse, read, and contribute to group topics.”
Its good to hear they are continuing to update the site and improve upon the site. I am curious what sort of backlash, if any, will come from this update. It is no secret that for every person that loved the update there was another who hated it.
