Flickr has today announced on their official blog the launch of the long anticipated ability to include short video clips on the site. The blog post explains that the feature is for now available only to pro members and that clips are limited to 90 seconds.
90 seconds? While this might seem like an arbitrary limit, we thought long and hard about how video would complement the flickrverse. If you’ve memorized the Community Guidelines, you know that Flickr is all about sharing photos that you yourself have taken. Video will be no different and so what quickly bubbled up was the idea of “long photos,” of capturing slices of life to share.
