    I'm having issues logging into Flick with my Google account - keeps saying there was error and that I should try again. Anyone else seeing/seen this?

    Thanks.

    Flickr is trying to steal your soul. Log out and close your browser, clear cache, reopen browser and try again

    Strange - didn't work when I used the "Signin with Facebook or Google" link down at the bottom (as I've always done). However it works when I put my google credentials right into Yahoo login and password fields. Didn't know this worked.

    So I guess it's official now - logged in this morning an saw this message:
    "Flickr is removing Facebook and Google sign-in. To sign in to Flickr you need to create a Yahoo account."

    Perhaps that is a good thing? I have a few diehard computer geek pals from ye olden days (I mean OLD) and they all swear they'd rather be drawn and quartered than let FB get ahold of their info.
