Flickr Has Been Purchased by SmugMug

Flickr Has Been Purchased by SmugMug

According to the Director of SmugMug don MacAskill, to join the platform will not be.

"It sounds silly for the CEO not to totally know what he's going to do, but we haven't built SmugMug on a master plan either". "We listen to the users and if enough of them ask for something, we make sure it's there".

Then, when Verizon bought Yahoo in 2017, it stashed its properties, including Flickr, under the new identity of Oath - leading the photo-sharing service to become all but forgotten. "But the photos themselves remain on Flickr".

The pending sale of Yahoo's Flickr service shouldn't cause panic, however - if any seller even uses the platform for hosting their ecommerce photos. It was first created by Vancouver, British Columbia-based Ludicorp in 2004, and acquired by Yahoo on 20 March 2005.

'Overwhelmed' Letter Carrier Allegedly Held Onto 17000 Pieces Of Mail
There were about 6,000 pieces in his Brooklyn apartment and another 1,000 in his locker, authorities said. Investigators received tips from residents who reported seeing a big stash of bulging blue mail bags.

Flickr accounts and SmugMug accounts will continue to work just like before. They have attracted millions of users who appreciate SmugMug's personal approach not seen in the giants of photo sharing sites. "In the end, we will transfer Flickr to the SmugMug system and your Flickr photos will be moved", says the site.

SmugMug has a long history of empowering people who love photography and who want to improve their craft, making them a ideal fit for Flickr and our creative community.

The company has further added a special FAQ section to describe this agreement. "We share SmugMug's mission to cater to people-professionals, amateurs, and everybody in between- who invest time, energy and love into their photos,"

"We look forward to becoming part of the SmugMug family and continue to grow, innovate and delight our global community of photographers."
