The Flickr Gunners – Is It Time to Try Out Other Alternatives?

  1. Hi Luis, thanks for taking the time to mention Zooomr.

    Your arguments are fair, especially about your social capital.

    At this particular time, I don’t have a direct response to give you other than to be patient. I’ve almost locked-down a fair amount of money to host Zooomr in a better environment, in addition to building technologies that will allow you to import all of your photos from Flickr.

    I may be one person, but that won’t stop me from redefining how people communicate with photos, especially via the Web. As Zooomr starts to break away from Flickr’s feature-set (which is happening even now) you will be able to more acutely distinguish the two — I appreciate that you have decided to check-out Zooomr, as it means a lot.

    If you would like to test Zooomr Pro, just shoot me an email and I’d be happy to get you started.

    No matter who comes-out on top or if we all even remain standing, it’s going to be the consumers who’ve won. Flickr has been holding back for too long.

  2. Hello Kristopher and welcome to elsua! Thanks much for dropping by and for the feedback comments. Appreciated.

    Great ! I guess that is part of the reason why Zoomr has been down for most of the weekend. I tried to play around with it on Saturday and Sunday but both days it looked like the system was down. Perhaps due to those changes you have mentioned above. Thus I guess we will have to be a bit more patient till the changes are complete.

    At this point in time I am just looking forward to the changes and having Zoomr up and running before I would dive into a Pro account. Then after I may be able to compare them I would have a look into a bit more and see the main differences between a Pro account and a regular account. I guess they would be around the same kind of functionality as what Flickr may be providing already although somehow I feel that they may come with a twist we might enjoy a bit, too !

    Indeed, I agree with you that at the end of the day it would be the end-users themselves who would benefit from all this as part of bringing the best out of a whole bunch of options and then let the end-user community decide what they would want to do. So far, in my case, Flickr seems to be the winner from the whole lot. We shall see if that would be the same after I check out Zoomr the way it deserves.

    Thanks again for the feedback and look forward to hearing some more!
