|Description||Photo sharing website|
Former game designers Stewart Butterfield and Caterina Fake created Flickr, an online photo sharing network, in 2004. Flickr, which began as a photo-sharing feature of their gaming project, has since then blossomed into one of the premiere photo-sharing sites on the web. Yahoo purchased Flickr for $35 million in March of 2005. Since then Flickr continues to compete with other photo-sharing giant Photobucket.
|Launch Date||February, 2004|
Flickr.com is a photo sharing website with free and paid memberships. Users have the option to make their pictures private or public, however around 80% of the pictures on Flickr are public. Other features of Flickr include maps to track where and when photos were taken, tagging and commenting on pictures, and the ability to create postcards and other products.
|Launch Date||April 8, 2008|
Flickr Video allows pro users to upload videos with a max length of 90 seconds and max size of 150mb.
Videos are displayed alongside photos on the site and can be embedded elsewhere on the net with a cleanly designed player.
