One thing I don’t quite like about Flickr is their groups. They’re not functioning as intended. There are so many similarly-named groups (e.g. “Long Exposure” and “Long Exposures”), and most groups have become a photo dump, with no post in the discussion (often the latest post is from several years ago). Hope Flickr will revamp groups.

If Flickr revamped the groups by combining or eliminating groups, it would only make a bunch of members mad and leave Flickr, probably putting Flickr in financial peril they don't need.

Of course we shouldn’t be eliminating active groups (active in a way that people are posting in discussion section, not just dumping photos). I’ve rarely come across such thriving groups, though. Most of groups (including bigger ones) have no conversation for years. Flickr might as well start something new in place of groups.
