Great much needed info! Thank you.

Is it permissible to add a Flickr badge to a U of M website that links 
to a specific Flickr page used by a department? Is there a page that 
explains the proper way to link to social networking sites (on a U of M 
website)? If not, that would be really useful. Any info would be much
