Flickr bought by SmugMug, which vows to revitalize the photo service

SmugMug CEO Don MacAskill told USA TODAY he’s committed to breathing new life into the faded social networking pioneer, which hosted photos and lively interactions long before it became trendy.

@anildash: I am excited to see an independent company that cares about photography and has a long-term sustainable business model become a steward for Flickr. We need open, indie social platforms more than ever on the web right now.

@stewart: I like this!

@caterina: Glad to see that @flickr found a good home at @smugmug! Happy to help if I can Don! 😀
