yea, imgur is some sort of social media platform; I don't understand why it needs to be that.

Pretty much the only way they can be profitable.

A pure image hosting site would be practically invisible. No reason to visit the site other than to drop off images and collect links.

Add some social media interaction and you'll have people hanging around, and that's worth something to advertisers.

From mobile, they are apparently automatically published to the masses there is something to click not to publish, from computer you choose to publish to the great unwashed

Imageshack did the exact same thing years ago as Photobucket is doing now - and then add in all the adware...that's why Photobucket became so popular...

Now Photobucket s**t the bed and everyone is jumping ship to imgur.


Let's see how this plays out

Even more interesting is that IMGUR was created by a redditor, in order to have a better way to upload photos. Now IMGUR social media crowd really hates reddit.

I started using photobucket at least a decade ago, and back then ignore wasn't the best image hosting site around. Imageshack was laden with viruses and pop ups. Photobucket had a simple UI, large amount of storage available, all free. Even with 10 years of use, I don't think i ever used more than 5% of my allotted usage.

Photobucket has been going steadily downhill for years. The website became bloated with ads, started getting a ton of pop ups, and the UI got all messed up. I had a weird login issue a few months back and their help desk was completely worthless.

I'm not sad about jumping ship to imgur in the slightest. The only real annoyance is that every picture thread from here to the moon is now full of broken links.

I have pretty much the same story. I'm going to use paintballcity as was suggested. I'm not a super heavy picture poster anywhere, so we'll see how slowly I get to my max % of space used.
