    Bonjour, Les vrais êtres humains sont ceux là qui savent venir en secours à leurs semblables quand ils souffrent. Cet Homme m'a fait un prêt de 49.000€ sans du tout me compliquer la tache au niveau des documents que demandent les banques lors des demandes de prêt. Si vous êtes dans un besoin financier , grace a lui jai aujourd'hui le super marché du coin, il a été mon sauveur et vraiment je ne sais pas quoi lui faire c'est pourquoi jai décidé aujourd'hui de témoigner en sa faveur vous pouvez le contacter par mail et suivre ses directives et vous serez satisfait en 48h maximum .Je vous le confirme et dès cet instant s'il arrivait que vous ayez besoins d'un prêt veuillez bien prendre contact avec lui . Donc vous qui êtes dans le besoin comme moi vous pouvez lui écrire et lui expliquer votre situation il pourrait vous aider son mail : a.sene.rossmy@gmail.com

    I have always appreciated Flickr's corporate sense of humor. It may be a little dry at times but still worth the effort.

    Hmm - has this gone away? I forgot all about it, am happy that I haven't seen one of those for ages.

    I'm with you 100% in paragraph one, but the thing that made me rethink my original visceral reaction to "Reactions" was that I want Flickr to survive! And if they feel they need to do these kinda things to survive, then I'm OK with it. 'Cause, lets face it, FaceBook and pro image sales sites are either too commercial, or too personal, and Flickr is the only site I've found with a structure that allows high quality full screen viewing (including magnification), and the ability to discuss art and learn from each other (kinda like the Cubists, surrealists and impressionists did in 19th century Paris). Yeah, we still have to deal with the millennials (and their pictures of what they had for breakfast), but I'm not yet ready to crawl into a "safe space", so I think we're gonna have to learn to deal with it.
    But, as you've said in your "Get your audience" piece, giving us the ability to turn off Flickr Recations in our user profile would make dealing with the narcissistic i-Phone selfie crowd a wee bit easier!

    Good to see I'm not alone!
    I agree with what y'all said below, but I'll be staying with Flickr because of all the great photographers I've met here (Gee's Louise! Maybe it is a social site?!), and I doubt that they will be sending me any of this reaction BS (unless they're yankin' my chain). In the mean time I I'll be workin' out my delete key extra hard, and add deleting "recations" to my list of obnoxious things in my comment section (group adds, invites, "Please! look at my pics" links, etc.). A small price to pay for an otherwise exceptional service that allows serious photographers/artists to see and discuss each others work.

    P.S. The option to ban graphics (while still allowing reference links) from comment sections would be an excellent feature, but until then Delete, Delete, Delete, Delete, Delete, Delete, Delete, Delete, Delete, ...

    For goodness sake get rid of this childish facility. It's another step in reducing Flickr to the lowest common denominator. There are other photo-hosting sites without such infantile gimmicks.

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Totally agree .. What the .. **** ?

    What is supposed to do ?
    People comment on your photo, or mark it as a Favorite - Already ..
    And Why is it asking to be connected to your ' Webcam ' ? - what's all that about ??

    For some of us, flickr is a place where we can share photos and contribute to knowledge in particular subject areas. We are serious about at least some of our photos, and want to present them in a way that they will be taken seriously. That is why I posted this request:
    https://yahoo.uservoice.com/forums/211185-us-flickr/suggestions/6199616-ad-free-should-be-ad-free-for-visitors

    Your instituting Flickr Reactions is like saying "Get real - this is a trendy place for kids - we're not interested in your use of flickr as a repository of knowledge". That's why I voted for and support this posting: https://yahoo.uservoice.com/forums/211185-us-flickr/suggestions/18791056--flickr-reactions.

    There is so little offered to Pro users. At least, we could have the option to present a PROfessional appearance to our users, but not showing them ads, and by allowing us to remove that Flickr Reactions button.

    Peter said it best. It's such an affront to people who take their photography seriously. Where were you when we complained about allowing people to post their groups' icons in comments? If you think you have users who think this is cute, then give an option to not have it displayed.

  • Peter Juerges commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    remove the stupid facial icons...this is not facebook or snap chat...or is it? I pay for a pro site not a joke site!

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    if they (you Flickr) keep this up they are going to loose me and many others. JUST STICK TO PHOTGRAPHY for pete sake.@#$%%^&*(

  • Peter commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    What a ridiculous idea. Looks stupid and childish. Flickr needs to get away from these silly gimmicks.

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I agree... looks stupid..has a Facebook feel...how do I turn it off?, Lazy...does not belong.

  • Ian Docwra commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Looks horrible - just a lazy way to avoid commenting! If I have a reaction to a photo I will either add it as a favourite, comment, or both.

  • Jo Zee commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I don't know what to say about this new feature. I feel like I'm on Facebook. Not sure I will ever use this.
