How To Join Groups On Flickr

Flickr is a photo sharing community with members from all over the world. You have the option of joining groups within the Flickr community. This allows you to share photos with people who are in your group as well as network with friends and family. Joining groups is easy and fun. The following are the steps that you need to take when joining groups in Flickr. 

Step 1:

Log in to the Flickr website. You will need to enter your Yahoo! user name and password to do so. Once you are on the home page for the Flickr website, click on the groups tab at the top of the website. The following options are available under this tab: your groups, recent changes, search for a group and create a new group. Click on the option that reads "Create a New Group". 

Step 2:

After you click on the "Create a New Group" link you will be redirected to a new page. This page gives you three options to creating a new group. You can create a public group that everyone can see, a public group that is viewable by invitation only and a private group that can only be viewed by your friends and family. After choosing the type of group that you would like to create click on the "Create" button under that option. 

Step 3:

Now you will give your group a name and description. The name of your group can be anything that you want, however it should be relevant to the group you are creating. You also cannot give your group a name that already exists. If that group name does exist a warning will display and you will need to choose a new name. Write a short description so that people know what your group is all about. The description should allow anyone to know what kind of group you have created so that they know whether this group is right for them. Then set your group to either safe for everyone or 18 and older. Once this is finished click on the "Next" button.

Step 4:

If you have created a public group people may join this group right away. If you have created a group that requires as invitation you can invite people to join the group and begin sharing photos. You can invite your friends and family to your group as well so that they can share their photos with you.
