Yahoo is going to announce the shut down of Yahoo Photos in favor of Flickr that yahoo acquired two years ago though Yahoo Photos for years was the No. 1 or No. 2 most-visited photo site on the Web (more than 2 billion images are stored on Yahoo Photos and nearly 500 million on Flickr). In USA TODAY, writes:
Yahoo Photos will be shut down by the fall. Users will be directed over a three-month period to transfer their images to Flickr or other photo sites such as Shutterfly, Kodak Gallery, Snapfish or Photobucket. Yahoo says it will make the transition easy, with a one-click transfer process...Charlene Li, an analyst with market tracker Forrester Research, says Yahoo needed to make the change because photos on Yahoo couldn't be tracked in search engines.
