Switch your Flickr login from Yahoo! ID to Google or Facebook

Flickr/Yahoo just added Facebook Connect and Google OAuth support to their sign-in, this is great, coz now I no longer needs a Yahoo! account to use Flickr. (I assume you all loathe Yahoo! as much as I do right?)

Here’s how to change your Flickr account from your Yahoo! ID to your Google or Facebook account:

  • sign into Flickr with your Yahoo! account if you’re not already logged in
  • go to http://www.flickr.com/account/transfer/
  • hit “use existing Yahoo! ID”:
  • Flickr: Transfer your account

  • Hit “sign in as a different user”:
  • Dock-26

  • Choose Google, or Facebook (if you must):
  • Sign in to Yahoo!

  • signin and authorize your Google or Google Apps email and password, or if you chose Facebook, you probably will see a familiar oauth authorization window requesting some permissions
  • Click the “Okay, do it” button:
    Flickr: Transfer your account

Sociable released a WordPress plugin to link up WordPress blogs to Facebook with Facbeook Connect. I just installed it, took about 5 minutes, and it works great. It allows you to link your FB account to this blog, so you can post comments with your FB identity. Your comments are automatically approved if you posted with fbconnect. You also get to use the familiar fb:multi-friend-selector to invite friends to this blog.
