Flickr pro members have receved a letter from the SmugMug + Flickr CEO, telling in brief that Flickr is still loosing money. And that we should encourage our friends to go pro and pay. And that the pro subscription fee will increase next year. 


I saw so many companies bought with guarantees of perenity and big promises of evolution, terminated after a decent delay - the time necessary for people to forget these promises. So I can't help but feel the same scenario will happen with Flickr, in a year or two. 

My images are safely backed up, but I love sharing them with the Flickr community. So I hope I'm wrong. In any case, I have started to move my images in a personal website: a gallery not threatened by the appetites of the big business. 

What's your feelings and thoughts?
