The Photobucket Debacle Shows Us the Danger of Relying on Free Services | Fstoppers

Posted on July 6, 2017 by Admin under Business

There’s plenty to be upset about here: the somewhat ridiculous price Photobucket is charging for their hosting service, the complete lack of communication to users who have relied on the service for years, the fact that migrating to a different service is a huge pain that won’t fix all of your links. Take your pick. Some people are even going so far as to call Photobucket’s new policy “ransomware” (spoiler alert: it’s not) and claiming that the image hosting company’s policy change is illegal (second spoiler alert: also not). What everyone should really take away from this is the inherent danger that comes with relying on a free service for anything in your life, let alone for things you need to conduct your business.

So yeah, this sucks for people who rely on Photobucket for hosting all of their images for free. People are upset to say the least and at a price of $399 a year for 3rd party hosting.
