“ in an industry that dangles free services to suck up people’s personal information to target ads, SmugMug has catered to people who are willing to pay for privacy and storage, offering four levels of subscriptions to appeal to everyday shutterbugs and professional photographers alike.”
I’m guessing that a business founded on (and profitable from) subscription services will not be giving away free hosting any longer. Users have been given a month to agree to the SmugMug usage terms or delete their accounts. I read the usage terms last night and they give no hint of an upcoming cash grab from people like us, but I’m nonetheless wary. I suggest Flickr users start to think about what they will do in case of a photobucket repeat.
