Flickr vs. WebShots

We all love Flickr. Congratulations to the Flickr development team on passing WebShots for the first time this week. I've got an article comparing the two services here: flickrnation.com/2005/11/flickr-and-webshots-classic-web2...

    how webshots sucks. they don't stand a chance... no comparison... thanks for posting this!

    poor old webshots... lousy picture quality and hardly any interactivity at all.

    yet, i'm surprised by flickr's popularity. flickr is immensely complicated when compared to webshots, i wouldn't have given it a chance. i would have expected a much easier service like fotopages .com to become big, esp. after the demise of fotolog.net . but somehow this did not happen, who knows why...

    Nad, obviously the Flickr people followed your advice, and sold to Yahoo! Probably excellent market timing on their part.

    I find it strange you think Flickr is complicated. I am a geek myself and therefore very biased, but I think its a beautifully designed application. My sister even has no problems with it.
  • Fatima 10y

    congrats to flickr! i agree with Mark. So beautifully and intitutively designed.

    Interesting. I've only ever used Flickr. I never saw any reason to consider another service...

    I joined Webshots but it didn't last as they don't have the ability to show the latest pictures so you got to weed through all the old ones hopping to see the new ones.. yes they got a link to see the new ones first but only 1 page??
    Also they don't stop users from stealing other peoples images without permission and posting them as their own

    How does it all compare today (October 2009) was investigating whether to splurge $20 for Webshots, felt that I should be smart and investigate, one paid the money is gone. Flickr is free and had a nice interface.
  • mannequindisplay 6y

    well for Oct 2009 is my last time I will ever pay for Flickr as the end of this month I will be deleting all my images from Flickr ..

    I used to belong to that webshots and it was nothing but problems and it was so pokey slow. I blocked webshots and told them to never bother me again. I joined Flickr a few years ago with minor issues, but to me and it is just my opinion, but Flickr has beat webshots all the way around, though I don't care to pay the price here for a pro account, I will keep it going for just awhile longer before I move my pics off and just store them elsewhere. At least Flickr is much easier to use and it's really just about the best site there for photo sharing.
