Flickr LogoFlickr is adding support for seven new languages to include French, German, Korean, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and traditional Chinese with more to come in the future. Flickr was founded 3 years ago and currently has about 24 million active monthly users with only about 45% of that user base coming from the US. Good thing they are adding all that language support.

“Why are we only getting around to this now?” he asked self-mockingly. “There are two answers. One: We are stupid. Two: that we are late.”

Flickr was one of the first to make “tagging” popular and currently have 12.5 million unique tags with 525 million stored photos.
