ImageShack

ImageShack is a hosting company for online media. It hosts billions of images and videos for users around the world, making it one of the world’s largest independent media hosts. Imageshack.com, the company’s flagship product, makes saving and sharing images and videos free and easy.

ImageShack launched Yfrog.com in February of 2009 to offer easy image and video sharing to Twitter. It was launched on top of the same infrastructure that supports ImageShack’s hosting service. For Twitter users, not only is Yfrog free with no registration required, but sharing pictures or videos is as simple as two clicks. It is designed for real-time, rapid uploads and sharing and provides secure login via Twitter’s credential service (oAuth). Yfrog enables photos and videos to be shared via email, via links and embedded codes, and on many social networking sites.

In August of 2012, ImageShack launched yfrog Social. It was designed to give users a new way to connect and interact with each other in a way that is still fun and meaningful. The key elements of the network is that it is simple, personal, and private. Yfrog Social is not driven by monetizing the content of its users, rather it makes a product for its users, and only them.

In October of 2012, ImageShack launched its newest endeavor, SkyPath. It is an app that syncs with your ImageShack account and your iPhone’s photo library. ImageShack is dedicated to providing quality products, that are easy to use, centered around photographs, for our users.
