After Flickr’s major redesign back in May this year, the website’s community groups have now also been given a makeover inline with the rest of the site.
With the increasing popularity of 500px, I would say that groups are the one advantage that Flickr still has, whilst it may be fair to say many of the groups are relatively pointless, there are a fair number that have a good sense of community, with plenty of active discussion and debate between group members.
Below is a screenshot of how the new groups look:
Flickr commented on the redesigned groups:
This new design will make it easier to navigate your group’s content and to submit photos to the group — along with other improvements to the left-hand side bar, we’ve added an additional button for adding photos to reduce scrolling. Your group description also has a new home in the “About” tab, where you’ll find that group’s rules and submission guidelines as well. We preview a segment of your group description below the group name in the menu for more visibility. Finally, the “Discussions” tab presents group discussions in a new format that makes it easier to browse, read, and contribute to group topics.
