There is no shortage of places to share and interact with photos. From Snapchat to Instagram to Vine, every few months a new photo app launches (or is scooped up by a bigger fish). And for good reason. There appears to be an ever increasing supply of people taking and sharing images and videos. According to Pew Research Center Internet Project, 62% of internet users have shared or curated a photo or video.
Flickr, created in 2004, which was one of the first social photo services to launch, was later sold to Yahoo! in 2005 for $35M. It is still a significant photo sharing app in today’s crowded marketplace with more than 8 billion photos from more than 87 million users. More than 3.5 million new images are uploaded daily.
