We shouldn’t assurance a aggregation to abundance our photos for chargeless for eternity, but it’s adamantine to apprentice that assignment a few years too late.
What’s sad is that lots of bodies won’t absolutely download their photos from Flickr afore they’re gone forever. Maybe they won’t analysis the email abode the notification was beatific to; maybe they won’t be able to log in; maybe they won’t bethink they had the annual at all. And alike if anybody absolutely DOES save their old photos, they’d aloof alive on their adamantine drives, rather than actuality aggregate with the world. Flickr was a admirable allotment of the mid- to late-00s internet that had a absolute community.
Of all our abstracts broadcast beyond the internet, photos are the best actual and personal, article that feels like accurate a accident back they disappear.

Aloof this fall, Yahoo-owned Tumblr banned old developed content, wiping out a massive block of internet culture.
It’s all a acceptable assignment about how we shouldn’t assurance a aggregation to abundance our photos for chargeless for eternity, but it’s adamantine to apprentice that assignment a few years too late. We accept to break acute about our agenda acreage — OUR photos, OUR abstracts — if we appetite to authority assimilate it. Which is why I’m acrimonious you: DOWNLOAD YOUR DAMN PHOTOS NOW!
