Yahoo buys Flickr

Flickr is now part of Yahoo! As CNET reports, Yahoo has bought photo-sharing site Flickr :

Yahoo has purchased online photo-sharing service Flickr, less than a week after the Internet giant launched a beta test of a new blogging tool.

Vancouver, British Columbia-based Flickr lets users upload digital photos from computers and camera phones, put together photo albums, and post photos to blogs, among other things.

It’ll be interesting to see what happens to Flickr. According to a Yahoo spokesperson, Flickr will remain a standalone site for now. The company’s employees, however, will relocate to Sunnyvale later this year.

  1. Hopefully it won’t become another craptastic Yahoo! service, like Geocities.
