    I would put good money on it leading to an even more intense drive to monetise content. Costs will be cut. I've said it before, and I shall say it again - if you are not paying for the product, you are the product. Sorry guys.

    I'll be pulling out of Flickr (but won't be going to iPernity, I'm afraid, the costs are way too high). Maybe Smugmug or Zenfolio.

    My Smugmug account costs me $8.xx (cannot remember the change) a month, and I'm very satisfied with it.

    "...you are the product." It's true, one of the reasons I avoided Facebook until it became such a great way of staying in touch with my adopted Lao family. I keep as tight control on my account the usual burgeoning list of "friends", but a lot is inevitably being sold to the highest bidder.
