Flickr adding ranking algorithms within the next month

Stewart Butterfield announced a new Flickr feature at tonight’s Tag Tuesday event. In the next few weeks Flickr will introduce the ability to algorithmically sort photographs using criteria such as the most commented posts, the most popular photo publishers, and the structure of a user’s social network. The new ranking system will allow for the most active pictures surrounding an event to rise to the top of the pile instead of treating an entire tagspace as a chronological flow.
