Flickr (pronounced “flicker” about this sound pronunciation (help info)) is a picture and video hosting website as well as an online community-based in the United States. It is a popular platform for amateur and professional photographers to upload high-resolution photographs, and it was established by Ludicorp in 2004. It has changed hands numerous times, and SmugMug has held it since April 20, 2018.

Flickr has 112 million registered users as of June 10, 2015, with more than 3.5 million new photos submitted per day. The site announced on August 5, 2011, that it was holding over 6 billion pictures. Flickr allows you to view photos and videos without creating an account, but you must create one in order to post anything to the site. Users may also build a profile page with images and videos that they have submitted, as well as add another Flickr user as a contact after registering an account. Flickr provides official mobile applications for iOS and Android, as well as a mobile-friendly website.

Ludicorp, a Vancouver-based firm formed by Stewart Butterfield and Caterina Fake, launched Flickr on February 10, 2004. The service arose from technologies built for Ludicorp’s Game Neverending, a massively multiplayer online game played on the web. Game Neverending was eventually canceled because Flickr proved to be a more viable project. Butterfield then developed Glitch, a similar online game that was shut down on November 14, 2012.


Flickr’s early incarnations centered on a chat room called FlickrLive, which allowed users to exchange photos in real-time. The chat area was buried in the site map as subsequent evolutions focused more on the uploading and filing backend for individual users. As Flickr’s back-end systems moved away from Game Neverending’s codebase, it was eventually dropped. Tags, designating images as favorites, group photo pools, and interestingness, for which a patent is filed, are key elements of Flickr that were not previously available.

On December 9, 2004, the service was widely utilized by photo researchers and bloggers to host photos that they embed in blogs and social media, in addition to being a popular website for users to share and embed personal photographs and an online community.

On March 20, 2005, Yahoo! purchased Ludicorp and Flickr. According to reports, the purchase cost between $22 million and $25 million. All material was moved from servers in Canada to servers in the United States during the week of June 26, 2005, to July 2, 2005, and all resulting data became subject to US federal law. Yahoo! stated on May 3, 2007, that Yahoo! Photographs would be shut down on September 20, 2007, and all photos would be deleted; users were advised to transfer to Flickr. Flickr started on January 31, 2007, that “Old Skool” members (those who joined before Yahoo! acquisition) !’s will have to link their account to a Yahoo! identity by March 15, 2007, in order to continue using the site. Some users reacted negatively to this decision.
