Yahoo-owned Flickr announced that its 4 billionth photo was uploaded over the weekend. It was uploaded by a user that goes by the name of "punimoe."

"Sadly, while 1,000,000,000 is no more, you can still see what 2,000,000,000 and 3,000,000,000 looked like," says Heather Camp on the Flickr blog. "For what it’s worth, it’s really difficult writing about all these billions without having a small Dr. Evil moment."

Here’s what the photo looks like:

Punimoe is receiving a lot of congratulations and positive comments on the photo. Here’s what some of the users have said:

"Stunning photo. Well deserving of Flickr’s 4 billionth picture."

"So, that’s what the 4 billionth picture looks like. Sweeet :)"

"Nice one, and congrats on the ‘achievement’, albeit random chance o’course :)"

"Holy crap! 4 billion served!"

Flickr was launched in February 2004, developed by Vancouver-based Ludicorp. Just over a year later, Ludicorp and Flickr were acquired by Yahoo.

Recently, Flickr for mobile was added to the iPhone app store, the site refined its search results pages, and it began allowing connectivity with Twitter.

    That’s a lot… to imagine that think of 1 photo 4 billion times…

    Too bad so much of Flickr is actually hardcore porn being pumped into the grade schools, libraries and homes of countless children completely unfiltered, as they continually lie about that unlabeled adult content. Almost five years worth of the covert crud has been shared by thousands of pedophiles, sex predators, and general perverts but you would never know that from the family friendly front page. Super PR work (deception) going on there by Yahoo. Even the President, State Dept and Smithsonian have Flickr pages. Luckily for those folks at Flickr, all the world loves a good f*ck pic (and now video) so they can rest easy and let the good time roll from now on with billions more to cum. Who really cares if it’s the largest collection of nasty amateur and downloaded sex shots the world has ever known? Certainly not the direct advertising sponsors of it all. Visa, T-Mobile, Proctor and Gamble, General Mills, and many other companies seem to have no issue with paying for and endorsing over a billion hardcore and even child porn images so they can make their money from it too. Who’d of thought Freedom of Speech actually meant Free Porn For All provided by a major sponsor of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children? Not me.

    I have always used Flickr since it first came out and love the site. The premium membership isn’t too much, like $19 a year. Then you get unlimited uploads and sets.
