Overview[edit | edit source]
Flickr is an photo and video hosting and video sharing website, web services suite, and online community platform. Flickr derives its revenues from advertising and subscriptions. A free account provides the possibility to host a certain number of photos. While searching or viewing photos, advertising is being displayed. This revenue is not being shared with users. A "pro" account for a monthly subscription fee offers unlimited storage, upload, bandwidth, permanent archiving and an ad-free service.
