I deleted my Flickr account today. I haven’t used it in months. Over the years I have tried to get into Flickr, because I think I ought to use it, but I really can’t stand it. I don’t have any specific criticisms for the site, it’s just that I really don’t like using it. Not only did I hate uploading images to it, I didn’t like looking at other people’s images either.
On the other hand, I am gonna give Ello a go. It’s a beautiful looking service that seems, at least for now, dominated by creatives and unpolluted by advertising. If you’re interested, come find me: https://ello.co/jjsommer.
UPDATE: As of January 31st, I decided to leave Ello. It too seemed to be a chore, and I am no longer interested in social media as a chore.
