Between LinkedIn, Facebook, Crowdvine and others, I now have to spend like 10 or 20 minutes every morning adding friends all over the place.
ps: I was playing with Facebook photo albums the other day: it’s better than Flickr. Truly. Better. It doesn’t look as hip, and it’s not as focused on photographers, but it does much more with your social network than Flickr (an area they have always kinda neglected), and the images load faster (I think they just preload the next image while you’re watching the current one, a simple trick Flickr should copy.) Overall, it’s a much nicer social experience, which in turn encourages you to share your own pictures too.
I still don’t like behemoth social networks though.

If your a mac user then have a look at PhotoBook. It’s a native mac app for viewing facebook albums. Seems to have all the features you need, plus a real fullscreen slide show where all the images are pre-loaded. Nice
I’ll have to check it out again.
What I love most about flickr is the slideshow feature. I use it incesently in combination with Flickr groups. I no longer use a photo aggregator, no need to. The slideshow feature works brilliantly even on my full screen monitor.
I also use FlickrFan from Dave Winer and DeskLickr.
BTW, I personally hate behemoth social networks too.
