Flickr hot take Show more
When Yahoo realized they'd missed the smartphone shift, they tried to make Flickr something it wasn't suited for (Instagram! Look, filters!) & couldn't sustain (cloud storage for ALL your photos, just like FB!) Maybe chasing FB kept them alive for a while, but it put them in a bind down the road.
It sucks that SmugMug is deleting pics, but taking it back to basics might make it more viable long-term.
Maybe they can become a 1st-rate Flickr instead of a 3rd-rate Instagram or FB.
