Flickr Introduces Geofencing – A New Privacy Feature

“Previously, Flickr users were limited to turning geotags on or off for their photos, and separately limiting those photos to be visible to certain groups of contacts—two functions that happened to work together, but mostly functioned independently from each other…

Now, users can put a blanket privacy setting on photos that are tagged from a certain location. Say you often post photos that come from your living room—all of those can now automatically be categorized as Family-only because of the location attached, and without any extra effort on your part.

If you post photos from the city park, you might have Flickr mark those as public. And if you want to post salacious photos from the club for only your friends (and not mom and dad) to see, you could have all the photos with the club location automatically marked as Friends-only.”
