Rumor: Yahoo! To Announce Updates To Flickr During Today’s Press Event

flickr-logo-smallThe Yahoo!/Tumblr talk may be the biggest element of today’s Yahoo! press event, but that’s not all that will be announced according to Bloomberg. The once wildly-popular photo-sharing site Flickr will be updated, according to the report.

Flickr has taken a backseat to other social sites like  Instagram, Facebook, Twitter & Imgur, but still has more than 80 million monthly users. Upon arrival, of new CEO Marissa Mayer, Flickr was actually dropped from the Yahoo! homepage during an initial re-design. When Mayer took the reins, the Flickr community was abuzz and pleaded with Yahoo! (and Meyer) to make the service awesome again.

Flickr tried launching differentiating elements last year like a faster image uploading for larger photos and an overly visual new design. An integration of Flickr along with Tumblr would make quite a bit of sense seeing the visual nature of Tumblr, but no rumors  on what will occur in this update have been leaked.
