Flickr turns 10, reports one million photo shares per day
Social photo sharing site Flickr is reported to have completed ten years since it was originally created by Ludicorp in 2014.
With around 1 million photos shared each day, Flickr currently boasts of a record 92 million users across 63 countries, who have actively contributed to almost 2 million groups on the site.
Flickr saw an increase of up to 170 percent in the number of photos uploaded on the site after it started providing 1TB of free storage space to users in May 2013, Tech Crunch reported.
After the site was acquired by Yahoo in 2005, there were criticism and speculations regarding the survival of Flickr, however, a major product redesign across mobile and desktop under Marissa Mayer impressed critics and users.
