Along with this set of statistics about explored photos, here is another question I’ve been wondering for some time, although I could not find any data provided by Flickr, at least not on the 3 first result pages of Google. Anyway, the Flickr API is our friend, we just have to ask! ;-) The data reported hereafter regards PUBLIC PHOTOS ONLY, that is no private photo and no other type of material like videos. A few requests show that a vast majority of the uploaded material happens to be “public photo” anyway. Since Flickr started in 2004, until December 2013, the number of uploads sums up to 3.57 billion of photos, although Flickr has announced they reached 6 billion in August 2011… Either the Flickr API does not report all data ever, or the number of private photos and other material (presentations, videos) is as high as public photos but a few tests don't let assume that, or they are a bit optimistic ;-). Also it is to be noted that the search function of the Flickr API returns quite versatile data: the same query done at different times will return different figures... no explanation given on this issue. SUMMARY NUMBER OF PUBLIC PHOTOS UPLOADED IN 2013 - 586 million (585,789,736), - 48.8 million per month in average, - 1.6 million per day in average. NUMBER OF PUBLIC PHOTOS UPLOADED IN 2012 - 518 million (517,863,947), - 43 million per month in average, - 1.42 million per day in average. NUMBER OF PUBLIC PHOTOS UPLOADED IN 2011 - 560 million (560,228,008), - 46 million per month in average, - 1.54 million per day in average. Straight observation: in 2012, the number of uploads decreased by 7.5% compared to 2011. But although the first half of 2013 seemed to confirm this trend, June and July were exceptional. June even reached the highest monthly peak ever with 62,464,124 photos uploaded.
Estos modus explican también las dos máquinas de archivo en relación a su carácter físico: el archivo unido a la cultura objetual y a la lógica de los sistemas de memoria materiales, y el archivo basado en la información virtual que sigue una racionalidad más próxima a lo flexible y no estable, no ordenado linealmente y al margen de toda jerarquización
