We got an email that #Flickr was acquired by #SmugMug.

I closed my account after Yahoo purchased it, in 2005. Why am I getting email about this? Also, why didn't I get an email about Flickr going to Verizon!?

This is a reason the #GDPR was created.

@maiki as much as they suck they're still the largest hosting site for images

@spudboy The reason being the largest hosting site for CC images counts against Flickr is that the largest hosting site for CC images is attached to a database of customer data that keeps being passed along to various companies. I'd prefer those images be hosted elsewhere, in the "long now" sense. At any rate, "largeness" doesn't count for much to me. ^_^
