If you have an account on Flickr you probably received the long email from its CEO. They need more money or it may shut down. It has been a problem child several times. I have a free account and have not used it in a long time, so I will be closing it.

The main message from the email;

"Now Flickr needs your help. It s still losing money. Hundreds of thousands of loyal Flickr members stepped up and joined Flickr Pro, for which we are eternally grateful. It s losing a lot less money than it was. But it s not yet making enough.

We need more Flickr Pro members if we want to keep the Flickr dream alive.

We didn t buy Flickr because we thought it was a cash cow. Unlike platforms like Facebook, we also didn t buy it to invade your privacy and sell your data. We bought it because we love photographers, we love photography, and we believe Flickr deserves not only to live on but thrive. We think the world agrees; and we think the Flickr community does, too. But we cannot continue to operate it at a loss as we ve been doing." Don MacAskill - Co-Founder, CEO
