Eric Kim was right. Get your own platform, do not rely on Facebook, Instagram, whatever.

Flickr was acquired by Smugmug.

I got an email. Saying

Nothing will change immediately with regard to your Flickr account.

(Bold letters are theirs.) And then (of course):

If you do not delete your account by May 25, 2018, your Flickr account and data will transfer to SmugMug and will be governed by SmugMug’s Terms and Privacy Policy.

It is not that I do not trust SmugMug, it only shows that anything can happen to your platform.

Just saw Eric posted an un update on the same topic. Can’t improve on that. Here it is.
