    A Look Back At Yahoo’s Flickr Acquisition For Lessons Today

    When Yahoo made an offer to buy photo-sharing startup Flickr in early 2005, Stewart Butterfield and his team had a tough decision to make.

    Yahoo Confirms It Has No Plans To Update Flickr’s Windows Phone App

    Yahoo has no current intention to update its Flickr application for Windows Phone. A user request for the company to both update its extant, but quite dated Windows Phone app, and perhaps build one for Windows 8 (another user requested a Windows 8.1 app separately) was met with a terse, if friendly response: Thank you for this feedback. At this point, we are focusing our mobile development… Read More

    Yahoo Introduces New Style Of Flickr Embeds To Seed Content Outside Of The Site

    Yahoo has introduced a new cleaner style of photo embeds today.  Just about everyone has used content from Flickr in various ways at some point, especially from its great store of Creative Commons licensed images.
