We knew it: Yahoo to shutter Yahoo PhotosNICK DOUGLAS — Yahoo will shut down its popular photo sharing service in favor of the smaller but growing (and more snazzy) Flickr, which it bought in 2005, says TechCrunch. (The cool news: Yahoo will help users export their photos not just into Flickr, but into Photobucket, Shutterfly, Snapfish, or Kodak Gallery.) As blogger Thomas Hawk pointed out, Valleywag reported this as "unannounced fact" in February, but Flickr founder Stewart Butterfield said not to "put a lot of stock" in our reporting. You nearly got us there, Stewart! Photo: Indoloony
