Flickr and Facebook at 20


To celebrate this huge milestone, we’re taking a trip down memory lane to explore all of the technological and structural moments that have shaped Flickr into what it is now.

Mark Zuckerberg:

20 years ago I launched a thing. Along the way, lots of amazing people joined and we built some more awesome things. We’re still at it and the best is yet to come.

Is Flickr still relevant in any way? Everyone that I know who was using it stopped around 2014, if not sooner. Similar for Facebook, everyone that I know stopped using it for personal posts / photos around 2018 or prior, most people now only use it occasionally for the groups and marketplace.

@Ben I still use and enjoy Flickr every day. I’m not sure how well it’s attracting new users, though.

I deleted my Facebook account in 2011 when I found I was spending all of my time debunking things my family was re-posting that was already covered on Snopes to be fake. I just got tired of all of the misinformation (that was 13 years ago!)

Flickr, I still use daily - and just renewed 2 years of Pro yesterday for $130 USD. It's almost 20 years of photo history with 34,357 Photos.

Flickr is still popular in the Lego building community for posting photos of their custom creations.
