Shane,

Apologies.

I finally visited the Flickr site and confess my failure to understand that it was associated with Yahoo! stems from my abstract and vague knowledge that Flickr is a site that offers the ability to share photos. I had not realized it was acquired by Yahoo!  Once there, it is clearly sponsored by Yahoo!  I was asked to sign in with my Yahoo account or create one.

But I also had the option to sign in with either a Facebook or Google account.  If I chose to sign in using either of those two accounts, what happens?  Are they now 1st party sites as well?

Thanks,
John

I agree more research in this area generally will be helpful but for the specific Yahoo! use case I'm confident users understand that Flickr is part of Yahoo!.  Let me look into what I can share externally...
