Flickr is now a teenager: The pioneering photo-sharing platform turned 13 on Feb. 10, notes Digital Trends, adding that the site is now home to 13 billion images and, as of 2016, a billion monthly active users, with more than half those members using the mobile app. Flickr first launched at the O’Reilly Emerging Technology Conference on February 10, 2004. That year, the platform allowed photo uploads up to 1MB in size displayed in either galleries or photo streams. Tagging, commenting, and groups followed. Flickr is asking users to share their 13 favorite images on the platform in a new album with the tag #Flickr13.
