One Terabyte in Flickr ?

All new flickr
All new flickr

Some Quick thoughts around what this could mean in the future?
1. Will it try to become another social media site around photos? If it does, it will die.
2. Flickr groups are better than fb fan pages. Will it make the groups better.
3. Ads on the side – Trying to remember if flickr had ads before. But i do see a bigger ad on the right top. More ads in future?
4. Backup of original photos (free now). I wouldn’t worry about the good clicks from the yester years saved on my external hard disk anymore!
