Kristopher Tate, a 17 year old at the time, originally started Zooomr as a place for him to share photos with his friends in Japan. The site was made so it could be viewed in both English and Japanese.
In April of 2006 Zooomer was relaunched and the following month digital media enthusiast Thomas Hawk was hired on as Zooomr's CEO.
Zooomr has continued to grow since then and now supports 18 localizations. For non English speakers, Zooomr may be the most compelling photo sharing option.
