But my absence hasn't stopped them from rolling out improvements. Like video support.
The latest adds the ability to add tags to your Photobucket photos. Very similar to FaceBook, but Flickr has been done that for years. They do have some nice features with this implementation of the tag idea.
You can tag items or friends, notify your people by email or even link it to a web page. One thing they have over FaceBook is that you can adjust the size of the tag, it's not just a big honking square. Too bad I stopped using Photobucket a year ago. But I still miss it.
