Tupalo, my favorite socialyellowpagesthing, recently added Flickr integration. Just like as known from Upcoming or a couple of other sites, you can now use Flickr-tags to assign your photos to a particular spot on Tupalo.
It’s pretty simple: copy and paste the tag provided on every Tupalo spot-page to your Flickr photo tags. I guess Tupalo will crawl Flickr in given intervals to find newly-tagged images. Mine were found and showed up on Tupalo within a few minutes.
Tupalo tags follow the de-facto machine tag standard on Flickr and look like tupalo:spot=316, whereas 316 is the spot id in that case.
I’m a person who loves photos, but generally speaking, I think it’s is a great addition to Tupalo. What’s better than visual impressions of a spot you’re reading reviews about?
Even though there are now more images on the site, the new feature doesn’t interfere with the clean – white space forever! – user interface at all. In fact, Tupalo is one of the few sites my boss could immediately deal with, and this means something like olympic gold for usability. It seems like every button, link or information is where it should be on this site.
Great work guys!
