VER­I­ZON BUYS FLICKR

Digital SLR Photography - - Snapshots -

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!
