Just went onto flickr to put some photos on here and I have a notification saying some one called Patrick has liked one of my photos on my account ?

What's that all about, should I be looking at my settings on flickr, or have I got a stalker

Im not sure how flickr works, but maybe a lurker on the outside has viewed your pics from the links on here, then liked it on the flickr site??

Nah, the liked photos will have been Public.

@jonnyswamp, did you perhaps forget to make some of your uploads private? From memory Flickr has a fairly obscure way to indicate whether each uploaded photo should be publicly viewable or private, and it's easy to forget to set them to Private every time.

I'll have a look later, the "like" came just after I'd uploaded to Flickr and before I'd put it on here. So I have a stalker then

Having played around with Flickr a bit more this morning, setting a photo to Private will prevent it from being posted online, including here.  However, instead you can set the pic to be excluded from public searches, which should be pretty much the same as Private, and should stop randoms from seeing your pics unless they navigate to your Flickr profile.

Hidden from search

Looks like our posts just crossed.

Possibly - if he has already found your profile then maybe.

You’re fucked, everyone knows that Patrick guy is a stalker. Can’t believe the others didn’t warn you before. 

Is Patrick your stalking and online dating name ? 🤣🤣🤣
