Abstract

Flickr, emblem of the Web 2.0 supports a set of photography practices that is different from what traditional photo amateurs are used to. In this paper we cary on a distinction drawn by other authors between “Kodak Culture” and what we call "conversational use of photography". Using a (5M-users, 150M-photos) base of flickr data extracted by way of the Flickr public API, we show that these two types of uses coexist on the platform and even that the rate of this conversational use is surprisingly low. Beyond extensive basic figures, we have led several analyses giving some key features explaining by which way this minority can have a significant impact on the dynamism and organization of the whole community.
