Flickr is a social photo sharing site that helps you share your photos with the world and connect with other photographers. When you first sign up for Flickr, you're given a long, complicated-looking URL for your Flickr profile page. You can replace this URL with a custom vanity URL that is much easier to remember and much easier on the eyes. In just a few steps, you can learn how to set up a vanity URL for Flickr.
