From the Flickr Blog:
Currently, there are nearly 2 million groups sharing 1 million photos every day. We were the first significant online community where you could store, organize, tag, and share digital photos. Before Flickr, there was no widespread way to share your photos with friends, family and the wider public.
Stewart Butterfield, Co-Founder of Flickr, wrote to us to share his thoughts about the last decade:
“It’s exciting for me to celebrate Flickr’s birthday! When we dreamed this photo site 10 years ago, we couldn’t have imagined the impact it would have on digital photo sharing and the way it would connect people worldwide. I am proud of Flickr and excited for what’s ahead.
