Flickr Six Months Later

Copyright © 2019 Nita McGrew Photography

I rejoined Flickr after many years away, six months ago. I haven’t purchased a pro membership because I’m not seeing the value in it at this time. As I understand it, SmugMug purchased Flickr from Yahoo and had great plans for it’s future success. I’ve joined and participated in groups, upload and interact with friends and followers regularly and it’s just not taking off. I’m not sure it will ever regain the popularity and successes it once had. Platforms like Instagram, VSCOs community and others have really pushed to the front of the line leaving Fickr, WordPress, and Blogger behind them. It’s going to take a lot more than name recognition to recover and while I’m hopeful for Flickr, sadly I think it’s a little futile. The layout is beautiful though as is the app.
