I just found out today that yahoo got sold.
Is my email safe? Are my photo's hosted on Flickr safe?
These and other relevant questions almost answered in this link.
I wasn't sure where to post this thread. the last time I posted asking which image hosting site people used, I posted it in the new to photography section??? I was so Newb back then LOL.
But it looks like we have 2 yrs to sort our stuff out before we have to make the heavy decisions.
Do we leave a faceless corp that we have our personal stuff hosted on (email, pics, etc) for another faceless corp just because they are getting taken over by a faceless corp?
So, I'm not really a conspiracy theorist. But new owners can change privacy rules (not that I thoroughly read the existing rules).
Should I care. I do a bit.
I will have to go through and save any important info in my emails, in case they are lost.
And I have a bit of time and effort invested in my images.
I'll go back to my old thread and probably choose a new image host.
Just to be sure.
Anyway. Just a heads up for anyone else that finds this news of yahoo being sold off, as a bit of a surprise.
