AOL Pictures takes on Flickr


More social website jostling, as AOL upgrades and launches a beta version of AOL Pictures as a direct competitor to Flickr.

Flickr, if you’ve been hiding in a cave for the past few years, is the photo-sharing website that pretty much caused the phenomenon of content sharing, and was recently taken over by Yahoo.

Will it work? In the world of social Internet sites, it doesn’t have nearly a silly enough name to be a runaway success. AOL Pictures – yeah, well, it does what it says, and you know who owns it, but it’s not a daft name is it?
