Will Yahoo’s New CEO, Marissa Mayer, make Flickr awesome again?
Will Yahoo’s New CEO, Marissa Mayer, make Flickr awesome again? One fast-acting domain-purchaser certainly hopes so.
But seriously, we all know Flickr isn’t what it used to be. We at DP still love the site, which is brimming with the work of talented shutterbugs the world over (our Flickr Group pool is where we pull all of our daily closeUP shots from, and clearly there’s no shortage of amazing photography to be found there), but the user experience could be much, much improved. So with this week’s news that long-time Googler Marissa Mayer will be the new head of Yahoo (which owns Flickr), there is renewed hope that the once dominant photo-sharing site will get the attention it deserves. After all, Ms. Mayer not only has major tech chops, she is also expecting a baby this fall whom she will no doubt want to photograph the daylights out of like any other 21st Century parent.
