Lack of innovation was the primary reason why flickr lost a large percentage of its users, and not as yahoo killed it. As we know, this photo sharing was the best online photo application before the mobile shifting. But since then, yahoo didn’t make any competitive features to go with the flow, and didn’t use its community as an advantage.
Along the way is the evolution of Instagram. This photo sharing application that can be downloaded and available for android and IOS gets users’ attention for its unique way of making photos old, and the social media integration for twitter and facebook become its key to surpass flickr.
For this time, Flickr does the right moves; make a lot of changes and hopeful that its users will be going back; as reviewed by pundit – its like instagram but better. Added functionalities such as more robust search, upload multiple photos, suite of editing tools and can be embedded in twitter stream.
Flickr changes come in the right time since the competitor has some issues on twitter regarding service updates. If Instagram is the most popular in 2012 then, Who will be the best photo sharing application in this coming year?
