How Yahoo Killed Flickr and Lost the Internet

The way I see Flickr is that is is for photographers and general picture enthusiasts more than anyone else. It certainly could stand to be improved in many aspects, but it is still one of the better systems out there (Photobucket and other image hosts leave something to be desired).

Instagram seems like a big fad to me and I have no desire to use it. I see photos from there pop-up on my Facebook newsfeed and laugh to myself due to the ...artistic... filtering. Sorry, it doesn't help the present-ability of cellphone photos much. In a way it's a good introduction to the world of photography for people who never really thought much about getting into it.

Facebook is a completely different animal and I don't think Flickr was ever setup or had a chance to do something like them. It would have taken the focus away from photography and moved it to social anything.
