Internet Begs New Yahoo! CEO, “Please Make Flickr Better!”


FlickrIt seems that Flickr is on the top of everyone’s minds when it comes to revitalizing the fledgling Yahoo! Hopes are high that Google recruit Marissa Mayer can breathe new life into the Yahoo! suite of services, and according to an article on Mashable today, it looks like viewers are demanding she begin with Flickr.


Flickr was at one time the top site for sharing photos online, and at Speak Social we still use it to house and organize photos for our clients. It’s a user-friendly platform that plays nicely with other sites like: Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and WordPress. Unfortunately, a lack of updates has left the site feeling a bit antiquated – especially when you compare it to the flash and pizazz of Instagram, which really is quite frustrating to use on a professional level.


That’s why Los Angeles-based entrepreneur, Sean Bonner, started (with corresponding hashtag) and posted eight simple words …


Dear Marissa Mayer, please make Flickr awesome again!


“I’ve always loved Flickr since the beginning,” Bonner told Mashable. “After Yahoo! bought them, they abandoned it, and it’s been falling apart and neglected ever since. I’m hopeful that Marissa Mayer could be a catalyst for change. I didn’t have her email address, so this was as great way to sound the bullhorn.”


However, he wasn’t sure that the site got any attention until this was posted today by Flickr:





“Hiring people is a great sign,” Bonner told Mashable. “This website is a great sign. They never would have been able to do that three years ago.”


So we ask our viewers, what do you think would make Flickr better?
