Flickr users have been putting up with half-baked solutions for sharing their photo streams on Facebook for a long, long time.

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.
