Now Shopping for Photo Service

4 Comments

Rafat Ali asks the question – is there a photo-blogging related buyout in the works? Good question. Jeff Clavier has something here when he narrows down buyers to CNet or Google. Between these two, they have bought a couple of companies related to photo-related services. Google has Picasa and Hello.com but missed out on Flickr which opted for Yahoo instead. So who could be buyout target? Fotolog is one and my bet is Smugmug which had about 51,000 customers & 17.1 million photos! And then there is ShutterFly – a VC backed start-up. It has a wireless component as well! Stay tuned!
