Flickr’s Groups Finally Get a Refresh

Yahoo! breathed new life into its flagging Flickr. It had a seemingly archaic design that proved increasingly difficult to navigate on tablets. Moreover, it had lost its spark, but that all changed with the design overhaul. With a new tiled look and a free terabyte for each user, Flickr was back at the top of its game, but the update didn’t cover all areas of the site. Groups, one of the most important sections, still existed with the old layout.

Fortunately, that’s no longer the case as the Groups area has been brought up to speed with the rest of the site. When you click on Groups, you’re brought to a swanky tiled view, each a group a square with a lead image, and along the right side, you’ll see sponsored groups and groups Flickr “noticed”.

Once inside a group, you’re immediately taken to the photos where they’re shrunk accordingly like your photostream to create a sort of mosaic. The latest discussions are available on the left side as well as relevant news. It’s all much more visually pleasing. Now you won’t have to worry about going back in time when you check out some groups.
