Flickr and Facebook, Two Birds One Stone

Flickr says it's even easier now to share your photos and videos to Facebook with their new and improved integration. They are using the Yahoo Updates platform to make it happen. If you have a Flickr account, you can add link your accounts together here.

I love killing two birds with one stone. It really is cumbersome to upload to Flickr, add descriptions, add tags...and then have to do the same thing over again on Facebook.

The only problem is that when you upload photos to Facebook from an outside application, you cannot tag those photos. So, in cases where I want to be able to play the Facebook tagging game, I'll have to upload the pic to both places, which could mean a double post to Facebook of the same image.

I'll play around with it and let you know. Will you use the new feature? Are we connected on Flickr?
