VERIZON BUYS FLICKR
Online photo community Flickr has a new owner. Despite it’s large user base, the network has often struggled to keep up with the changing trends, as well as being pulled in different directions from above. After being snapped up by Yahoo in 2005, the image- led network has had a roller coaster of a ride with updates both to its terms of service and interface. Now, in a move worth USD$ 4.48 billion, American telecoms giant Verizon has acquired Yahoo, and with it the Flickr brand. What this means for users only time will tell, but fingers crossed Verizon have some exciting plans up their sleeve!
