Hope for Flickr?

For the first few days the news about Marissa Mayer becoming the CEO of Yahoo was good but not that interesting to me: I’m not using any Yahoo product.

And then I remembered: Flickr!

I have always liked the service, and I have years of pictures uploaded there. I still prefer to upload a photo to Flickr rather than Facebook (well… I do upload stuff to Instagram too, but that’s another story).

I have all my food porn photos on Flickr, and I love paging through years of archives in calendar form.

I was ready to give up, and not renew my pro account next December. But now who knows… maybe there’s hope for Flickr. (Or maybe Marissa will shut it down).

PS: it looks like I’m not alone. And someone is listening.
