First came Flickr Video, now comes the backlash
Over 6,000 members have already joined the group, and more than 1600 have signed a petition asking for the new feature to be removed.
Basically, their argument is that there are plenty of places for people to upload and share videos. What's made Flickr special is its focus on images. Of course, anyone can filter out videos from their search results just by clicking on the advanced search options. It would be nice if the feature were more prominently placed, but why ask Flickr to modify its search bar when you could just try to incite a riot?
