Flickr turns 10 years old

Posted Feb 11, 2014

Photo social network Flickr has turned 10 years old. Flickr, owned by Yahoo!, launched on February 10, 2004. Flickr now has almost 2 million groups that shares around one million photos per day.

“It’s exciting for me to celebrate Flickr’s birthday!” stated Flickr co-founder Stewart Butterfield said in a statement. “When we dreamed this photo site 10 years ago, we couldn’t have imagined the impact it would have on digital photo sharing and the way it would connect people worldwide. I am proud of Flickr and excited for what’s ahead.”

Flickr was redesigned last May and the free storage limit was increased to 1 terabyte. Flickr also has new iOS and Android apps.
