Flickr has been snapped up by Silicon Valley photo-sharing and
storage company SmugMug, USA Today has learned.
SmugMug CEO Don MacAskill told USA Today he’s committed to
breathing new life into the faded social networking pioneer,
which hosted photos and lively interactions long before it
SmugMug, an independent, family-run company, will maintain Flickr
as a standalone community of amateur and professional
photographers and give the long neglected service the focus and
resources it deserves, MacAskill said in an exclusive interview.
I hope it works. Flickr was so great back in the day. But I fear it’s too late, and the world has moved on.
