SmugMug Has Acquired Flickr - A Photo Sharing Service

Flickr - a photo sharing and hosting platform has been officially acquired by SmugMug - another photo sharing and hosting platform. This agreement was concluded few days ago and all access has been given to Oath Inc by SmugMug.

SmugMug might sound new to many of us here but the truth is, SmugMug is not a new site. As a matter of fact, they started as early in 2002 while Flickr started 2 years after in 2004.

SmugMug is a premium site. They don't offer free services. All their plans are subscription-based, offering paid plans for individuals and businesses. But Flickr's popular ad-supported service will remain intact.

In an interview with SmugMug CEO - Don MacAskill, he said "I don’t know what the future holds. This is a new model for me,”. He plans to maintain Flickr as its own standalone platform, and even hopes to bring something out of it.

This is what Flickr CEO has to say;
SmugMug has a long history of empowering people who love photography and who want to improve their craft, making them a perfect fit for Flickr and our creative community. With SmugMug, we’ll continue to focus on you, the Flickr members who inspire us all with your work.

We are yet to know the worth of this deal as financial details hasn't been disclosed yet.
