PhotoALBM.com, a NY Photography startup is joining
and many others who are raising awareness about the fact, that the World’s Largest Photo Sharing Platform, Flickr, is just about to start deleting user-generated content from their servers.
For more information read fine print on the “Looking Ahead” page: flickr.com/lookingahead
We are confirming, that it does look like content deletion will take place on February 5th, 2019. Our countdown clock is visualizing how much time people have left to backup their files before the file recovery cut off time. What will happen to the “likes”, “comments”, and other information related to deleted content, and how this content will be treated in general, is still unclear.
We are helping flickr to raise awareness because we understand, how hard it is for them to communicate company news and updates when statistically, more than 90% of their users don’t open flickr emails. Historically, flickr allowed new signups only with Yahoo emails, so all email addresses that the company has on file today - are all outdated yahoo email accounts, all 100% of them. Statistically, only less than 10% of people today are still using Yahoo Mail.
We are worried about flickr users who didn’t receive the “memo” and just about to lose some important files only because they didn’t know about the upcoming changes.
Our message is simple; People, log into your flickr accounts and download a backup with your photos and videos. Tell your followers about the photo-recovery cut off time for free accounts with over 1,000 photos. Because when your memories are gone, they gone forever.
Some Flickr users are starting looking for alternative service. This is why, PhotoALBM.com, a New York based photography startup is inviting all Flickr users to try, test, and enjoy the new service by giving away a one-week, no obligation Free Trial with the promo code “FLICKR”. If you like the service and want to stay, promotional code “FLICKR” automatically gives you a 50% membership discount bringing membership cost down to only $2.50/month.
This is how we see it; We do a good job serving community, and you, guys, buy us a cup of medium coffee at the end of the month.
