Yahoo has been integrating Facebook into its properties more deeply, and Flickr is no exception. The company announced that it is launching a new and improved way to share Flickr photos on Facebook.

Users can simply connect their Flickr and Facebook accounts, and Flickr will automatically send updates to your Facebook feed every time a new photo (or video) is uploaded).

"As always, you have control over who sees your Flickr images," says Flickr’s Denise Leung. "Once you enable Facebook sharing, updates are only automatically sent to your Facebook feed when you upload them as public (or when you set a photo to public)."

"We’re using the Yahoo! Updates platform to power this integration," adds Leung. "Yahoo! Updates lets you share and view activity across multiple social networks, including on Yahoo!. Your Flickr updates are private on Yahoo! Updates by default and you can easily manage your settings there."
