In three short weeks it will be 2013. Someone may want to send a fax to Flickr and Twitter to let them know.
Over the past couple of days, both of these services have pulled a move straight out of 2010: they launched new versions of their mobile apps with — get this — filters. Filters!
Again, these guys think the Instagram phenomenon can be explained away by filters. Instagram has 8 filters? Fuck it, we’ll do 9! It’s simply not that simple.
Flickr is dead in the water, I don’t know that there’s anything that Yahoo! can do to revive it, Twitter on the other hand has no excuses. I really don’t understand a lot of the business decisions being made their of late.
Meh, I spend more time on Facebook these days…
