Flickr losing against Facebook and G+?

There are ongoing voices saying that there is something going wrong with Flickr. Wrong not in the sense that they are bad, but wrong in the sense that they could be missing the future direction. With Facebook launching a new Photo Viewing Experience (which actually reminds me a LOT to the one of G+...) and Flickr not having done nothing really new in the last years (!) there is a big chance that many users could move on to the other platforms. Thomas Hawk wrote a very interesting Open Letter to Scott Thompson CEO of Yahoo Inc (the owners fo Flickr, by the way). Check it out here!

I personally like Flickr a lot, but in my eyes they could be really be missing the new "social" train. Let´s see if the new management will pull the breaks... or better: accelerate!
