It is always nice to see an old brand land in a new home, especially when people were worried if it would even continue to exist at all.
Formerly owned by Yahoo, Flickr, one of the world’s largest image hosting services and beloved by many photographers the world over, has lingered in a state of limbo ever since its corporate parent was purchased by Verizon Wireless back in July 2017.
