I have been toying with the idea of getting a Flickr account. However, what I would really need is a family account.
My wife and I basically share photos. It’s very rare that I have pictures that are really my photos and not her. So it definitely seems logical to have one account.
But then, there’s the social aspect of Flickr, where you really want to have one account for yourself, where you can choose your friends, etc. For example, my wife may have access to photos that I don’t have access to. So here, two accounts make sense.
Ideally, we could have 1 account, which would allow 2 personalities. Each personality would have its own relationships, and they would share their photos. However, I don’t think that it’s the case yet.
Does that mean that we need 3 accounts? 1 pro account, to store our photos, and 2 normal accounts, to manage our individual social lives. And I’m not sure how those are going to interact in practice.
I need to figure this out. It turns out that somebody else is having similar issues.
