Photo hosting


Via Thomas Hawk: Photobucket is absolutely dominating as the photo hosting service of choice for the MySpace crowd.

Mashable randomly sampled over a million MySpace accounts to see where people were hosting their images and 68% of the market used PhotoBucket.
Interesting numbers:

  • According to a conversation Thomas Hawk had with the Photobucket folks Photobucket has 2.5 billion images
  • Webshot: 500 million
  • Flickr: 300 million

(these numbers are old by now!).

From the Mashable report: Another interesting find is that Amazon is hosting many, many images for MySpace users – yes Amazon!
