Flickr Betrays Loyal Longstanding Members — 4 Comments

  1. If everyone obeyed copyright laws Pinterest wouldn’t be such a competitor to Flickr and perhaps the changes would not have been implemented. You can use Pinterest without violating copyright, but most people don’t care.

    • Well said. Pinterest could be and should be entirely legal. That is what they say they want but they don’t care. It is down to people whose copyright has been violated to complain. That puts the work in the wrong place. Pinterest should prevent people uploading copyrighted material to their site. Google are also in the wrong because they support Pinterest by finding it so prominently and also Google image search is consistently in breach of copyright by presenting the pictures on their site.

  2. I noticed the deterioration in Yahoo Mail quite some time ago after it was announced that a lot of the regular staff had to go. The new Yahoo Mail is no better than the classic and many people say it is worse and slower. Many of the chronic problems persist, like switching from one text size to another, and flopping from bold letters back to standard without selecting it, etc. It’s legibility is pathetic with spidery letters that don’t have enough contrast. Only Facebook is worse than Yahoo for legibility. Much worse. I guessed they prefer to employ a load of cheapies and get rid of the the high salary high capability old timers. We are now seeing the results of getting in a bunch cheap smart alec schoolboys to save money and they are ruining both Yahoo and Flikr. OK but is the boss asleep?

    • I think the boss is screwing up basically. Yahoo overpaid for Tumblr by a considerable margin – a billion dollars (usd). Earnings at are Tumblr poor. I didn’t know that Yahoo mail had deteriorated and now Flickr. Flickr really was a good site but now it is less good.

      You could be right about the quality of employee because technically Flickr is less good than it was before the change. It is sad and disappointing.
