The Most Important Page on Flickr

Timoni West, on the shortcomings of Flickr’s UI for showing you new photos from your friends:

And remember, these are just the biggest problems. The page fails on a fundamental level—it’s supposed to be where you find out what’s happened on Flickr while you were away. The current design, unfortunately, encourages random clicking, not informed exploration.

I agree with Buzz Andersen: this is why I’m using Flickr less over time.
