Flickr incredible milestone -- 6 billion uploaded photos.

"Montbretia flower photo shown here is 6 billionth photo... uploaded Monday by eon60," the Yahoo-owned photo-sharing site said in a blog post.
Over the last five years, uploads to Flickr have been increasing at about 20% year-over-year, with users currently uploading more than 2,500 images per minute, said Sheeva Zarechian, a spokeswoman for the site.
With a new billion-photo mark being hit every year for the last five years, it'll be interesting to see if Flickr can keep up the pace.
Facebook is currently the most popular photo-sharing site on the Web, with more than 100 millionphotos uploaded daily. New challengers such as 500px are emerging as well, not to mention Google continuing to overhaul Picasa with its Google+ project.
