• My Thoughts on the SmugMug Flickr Acquisition

    5 monthes ago - By Peta Pixel

    Yesterday, we learned that the photo-sharing site Flickr has been acquired by the photo sharing site SmugMug. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
    Flickr was purchased by Yahoo back in the early days of the internet in 2005 for probably somewhere around $40 million. Yahoo managed Flickr for many years, but more recently Yahoo's core holdings were sold off last year to Verizon. Verizon folded Flickr into a new division called Oath which was made up of various Yahoo and AOL assets run by ex-Google executive Tim Armstrong. Now Verizon/Oath has sold Flickr to SmugMug.
