DIY Photography: Why Flickr is a diamond in the rough, and how to make it awesome again. “It was back in 2014 that I set up an account on Flickr. I posted a few images and forgot about the platform. Two years later I returned with a sensation of that this time it would be for good. Flickr is cozy —  it feels like a small town where everyone knows each other. I would love to see that small town grow into a bustling city. Why? Because I have grown fond of the platform, and because I believe it has a ton of potential. What is already great about Flickr and what can be improved? I have a few thoughts.”

Flickr Blog: Planned maintenance and Flickr downtime. “It is an exciting time at Flickr right now as we approach the final stretch of our migration of Flickr’s data and systems…. The process involves hundreds of millions of gigabytes of photos and videos (literally billions of photos) and 100+ million accounts. We knew there would be a few bumps in the road, and one of those unfortunate bumps is the need for some planned downtime while we finish the migration. Luckily though, when this step is complete, we’ll be well on our way to a much faster, much more secure, much more stable Flickr.”
