Consider this problem: all your friends are on Facebook, and all your photos are on Flickr. You’d like to keep your photos on Flickr. Aside from the fact that Flickr has most of the features you would want in a photo sharing application, Facebook downgrades the quality of your photos to a level just above digital garbage in order to conserve bandwidth and disk space. So what is there to do, when most of your friends aren’t going to frequently jump around between both sites, and you would certainly like to avoid the redundancy of uploading your photos to two different services?
Now that Facebook allows third party developers to build applications for their site, there is a solution to your photo conundrum. With all the new Facebook applications being built on the Facebook Developers Platform, there were bound to be a number of apps for sharing your Flickr photos. And there are, but which one should you choose?
