Apple Is About To Get A Deep Integration With Flickr & Vimeo

Apple Is About To Get A Deep Integration With Flickr & Vimeo | cross pond high tech | Scoop.it

Apple is going to integrate IAC's video site Vimeo and Yahoo's photo sharing site Flickr into the next version of iOS, the software that runs iPhones and iPads, Mark Gurman of 9 to 5 Mac reports.

Gurman says iOS users will be able to upload video straight to Vimeo from their iPhones and iPads, just like they can currently upload straight to YouTube.

The same will be true of Flickr. iOS users will be able to quickly upload their photos to Flickr straight from their devices.

This is going to be really good for Apple, Yahoo, and iOS users.

Yesterday, Yahoo announced a redesign for Flickr, and an increase in storage to 1 terabyte of data. This means that you can pretty much store all of your photos in Flickr.

Almost unlimited, free photo storage coming to iPhone users?

Social Login Trends Across the Web for Q4 2013 | Janrain

Social Login Trends Across the Web for Q4 2013 | Janrain | cross pond high tech | Scoop.it

During the past five years, the ability to register and log in on websites with a social network or email identity has become increasingly prevalent. In fact, 90% of people have encountered social login before, and more than half of people use it. Because it makes the account creation and login process so much faster and easier and eliminates the need to remember yet another username and password, it’s no surprise that social login has become so popular.

 

But which networks are people most likely to choose? How do these preferences differ based on the type of sites people visit? We all use multiple social networks for different purposes. Facebook is generally where we interact with our close friends and family. LinkedIn is where we maintain our professional persona. Google+ lets us do both, by letting us organize our social graph and content we share into circles. We use Twitter to follow influencers, share opinions, and read about topics of interest. And Gmail, Yahoo and Microsoft are our primary means of privately communicating with others via email.

 

For four years, Janrain has published quarterly reports to shed light on consumer preferences for social login, with data aggregated from the websites that use Janrain. The key takeaway, above all else, is that people want choice. In other words, there is not a single identity provider to rule them all.

Philippe J DEWOST's insight:

Interestingly, the real "camembert" does not match what I thought it would look like. My techdom bias would have led me to expect to a smaller G+ and a quite larger Twitter & LinkedIn share...
