Sharing Flickr photos and video on Facebook just got easier

Flickr users have been putting up with half-baked solutions for sharing their photo streams on Facebook for a long, long time. That appears to have finally been corrected now that Flickr is using Yahoo! Updates to bridge the way to Facebook. After taking the two minutes to connect your Facebook and Flickr accounts, any photo or video marked as "public" will automatically be shared on Facebook. A process that took a lengthy (in social networking terms) 15 minutes on our first try. If nothing else, at least this explains what Yahoo is doing these days.
