Flickr usage numbers

I’ve just been reading the slides (.pps) for a presentation Cal Henderson of Flickr gave at Web Design World, San Francisco last month. There are some very interesting numbers on the 4th page.

  • Over 2 million users
  • Over 93 million photos
  • 368TB of hard disk space

It would be interesting to find out what percentage of those 93 million photos are licensed under a Creative Commons style license. I’m sure I came across an article that gave some numbers a while back but my google-fu is letting me down. Does anyone else remember seeing that?

(368 Terabytes!!)
