1.2 million Flickr Photos Geotagged in 24 Hours

logoLook for a post on the Flickr Blog later today announcing that 1,234,384 photos were geotagged in the first 24 hours after the new feature launched yesterday (159 of those were mine).

Flickr Geotagging, which allows users to drag photos on to a Yahoo map and mark them with a specific worldwide location, received rave early reviews yesterday, even from competitors. After testing it myself I found it incredibly easy to go back and geotag hundreds of photos with very little effort. Congratulations to the Flickr team.

Flickr continues to rock along, with 4.5 million registered users and 17 million unique visitors per month. They have just under 230 million total photos uploaded and 900,000 new photos are uploaded daily on average.
