We are proud to tell that the photographs of the Swedish National Heritage Board on Flickr Commons now have been viewed more than three million times. This striking number was reached and passed this week and is surely worthy of some attention.
Our participation on The Commons on Flickr has allowed so many people from all over the world to view, use and interact on the images we show as samples from our collections. So far, we have created 22 sets with different kinds of images from Sweden and other European countries and lately also with photos of old drawings, watercolours and prints. Helpful and clever members of the Flickr community have in comments provided new and useful information to 10 % of the images (which we have added to the information in our photo database online, Kulturmiljöbild). It’s always very encouraging to read all the kind and cheerful approval of the images and to view the many comparative photographs that have been posted.
A big ‘Thank You’ to all you viewers and Flickr members who have taken your time to view and interact on our photostream on Flickr Commons since the start in March 2009! We are so pleased to share the Swedish cultural heritage with you. :)
