With Flickr For Sale It Might Be a Good Time to Backup

IMG_0257PinI’m not saying Flickr is going away, but assuming Flickr’s parent company, Yahoo!, gets sold, the future owner of Flickr is also in question. As this article on PetaPixel says

In the hands of a good owner, Flickr could thrive and live on as a dominant photo sharing option. In the hands of a bad one, it could go the way of MySpace and other once-powerful Internet services that have withered away from neglect and lack of innovation.

So, as a Flickr user myself, I’m not immediately worried that everything I have stored and linked from this blog on Flickr is in danger, but I’m going to make sure I have a copy of everything that’s on Flickr just in case. (As you always should!)
