As a Flickr Pro user with multiple accounts since 2008, I already had a Yahoo! account for logging into my two Flickr photostreams back when I first began using the site. One Flickr account is used to share family photos, the other is for sports photos which I shoot and share with the players' families. It is important that sharing with both groups is free to the invited viewers.
Fast-forward to a couple of years ago: Flickr began allowing users to login using Google or Facebook accounts. I chose to switch my login to Google, as my Y! email account had been hacked multiple times and, out of frustration, I deleted it. Fast-forward yet again to now: Flickr is removing the login ability via Google and Facebook, requiring users to have Y! accounts again. I don't want to set up a new Y! account. Not only that, but you can't use the same Y! account to login to multiple Flickr accounts. I reeeaalllyy don't want to set up TWO Y! accounts!
I am now actively researching other photosharing sites to find one that better suits my (and my family's/friends'/clients') needs.
In summary, I would not recommend Flickr to a friend.
