There are 3 types of groups on Flickr: Public, Public (invitation only), and Private. You should take a look at our Group Guidelines or the Group FAQto find out how to run a successful group, because you will be the group’s first administrator. Good luck, and have fun!Note: As stated in our Terms of Service and Community Guidelines, Flickr is intended for personal use only. This includes groups. Any commercial use must be pre-approved by Flickr at its sole discretion. If you’d like to create a group for your company or to run a contest, please contact Flickr first. If you don’t, Flickr may terminate your group without warning. There are thousands of groups on Flickr! Would you like to do a quick search to make sure someone hasn’t already started the group you’re about to make?

  • Public groups are useful for discussion and content about general subjects like Gardening, or Recipes to Share, or geographical locations, like Vancouver.
  • The group page is public and anyone who wants to can join instantly.
  • Admins can choose to show or hide discussions and/or group pools from non-members.
  • Invite-only public groups are useful for small groups who wish to focus on a particular theme, but want to maintain control over membership.
  • Anyone can view the group page, but the only way to join the group is by invitation.
  • Admins can choose to show or hide discussions and/or group pools from non-members.
  • Private groups cannot be made public later.
  • Private groups are useful for families or groups of friends.
  • Only group members and those who have been invited will be able to view the group page.
