SmugMug picks up Flickr off the Oath/Yahoo scrap heap

We’re better together.

SmugMug the trend-bucking startup that could has taken a very different path to the once darling, now sibling journey of Flickr.

The two began in an era of startup booms and while Flickr chased every growing user numbers and experienced heavy growth and booming acquisitions it has since continued on a downward trend ending up under the now Verizon branded “Oath” digital arm.

In the digital equivalent of a yard sale Verizon and now selling off the remnanents of what was previously Yahoo & AOL.

Sold for an undisclosed sum, privately owned SmugMug’s CEO Don MacAskill informed users via a FAQ page that it had no plans to integrate Flickr into the paid, professional service SmugMug provides and will continue to run it as a seperate entity. He did elude to the machine behind Flickr’s being shifted over to SM’s tech however.
