Update: the Mayer account has been taken down. No word back from Flickr on whether or not it was a fake yet.

    unless she refers to herself in the third person, I'd say someone else set it up for her. hopefully it has her blessing. ;)

    Good One Thomas ,
  • encouragement 3y

    By the way, Thomas, thanks for YOUR persistence. Being a part of flickr for so long, it’s like watching an old friend die of some debilitating disease ... when you know darn well that there's a cure to be had!
  • John Mason 3y

    Well that's a good start :)
  • encouragement 3y

    Whoa! Her account said it was deactivated for a while, but now it's back. What is going on?
  • Michael Veltman 3y

    Well, if she starts posting....
  • Dan McManus 3y

    Well something seems off with this now. The picture does not show up in your favorites. I can't find her as a member?

    Was it taken down?

    I saw your blog and came here to add as contact and now it does not seem there anymore?
  • encouragement 3y

    ... deactivated again
  • Invisible Cirkus 3y

    and now she;s gone. deleted. bummer.
  • Keith Andrew. 3y

    Well She didn't last long.....

    This may have been a fake account, but if not, I sometimes wonder if the corporate lawyers get involved in things like this. CEOs have to be very careful what they say publicly for liability reasons and having a Flickr account may just make them a bit too antsy. I can't imagine a few photos would be an issue and heaven knows it would give her insight on how Flickr can be improved. In the mean time, I'll keep my fingers crossed.

    John Mason maybe John. But I don't buy that argument. Marissa has an Instagram account that she posts photos to. She can post the same photos to Flickr just as easily.

    She also has a Google+ account.

    Larry Page is CEO of Google and has a G+ account. Sergey Brin has a G+ account. Zuckerberg has a Facebook acct., etc.

    There is no legal reason that would prevent Marissa from having a Flickr account. It would seem to me to be more by personal choice that she does not have one and I think that sends the wrong message. She should lead by example here. Not only should she have one, she should be encouraging every Yahoo employee to have one.

    Thomas Hawk I completely agree. One of the things I think that makes Google and Facebook what they are, is that even the top level people in the companies use their services. However, I seen in several companies where the lawyers can make some very small concerns that can get in the way of that. Larry, Sergery and Mark are all basically the top dogs in their companies, so they can do what they want with little concern. Marissa is not really in the same situation (ie. the board and certain owners of Yahoo) so she may feel the need to tread lightly. It sounds like from what I was reading earlier today that she has a Flickr account which is private. That, at least, is a step in the right direction.

    Also sounds like she is also looking for a new person to lead Flickr. I just hope they find the right person for that position. He or she needs to be technical but also with a real passion for photography. Yahoo needs a realistic business plan and Flickr could be one of the top gems for them going forward. I'll be very interested to see how this develops.
