Sometimes when you hit a roadblock in your professional life, it helps to look back on a moment of inspiration in your career. For me, one of those sparks came early on, when my business school class got to spend the day with Warren Buffett at his Omaha office. Nearly a decade later, a framed photo of Warren and I sharing a fist bump still sits on my desk at home, a reminder of a time of optimism about the future.
Customer loyalty isn’t what it used to be. Especially in the online world, trust can be elusive — hard to earn and even harder to keep. The fact is, digital consumers are growing ever-more skeptical when they’re thinking about buying. And can you blame them, given the almost daily drumbeat of stories about people getting their data stolen or their privacy violated? It’s no wonder that consumers are quick to exercise their power, always just a few clicks away, to switch allegiances to another brand.
There’s still no shortage of free stuff online, from apps to services. But increasingly, the old adage “you get what you pay for” is catching up with the Internet. Take a look across the digital landscape — image hosting, music and movie streaming, gaming, news — and you see the top companies offering more and more services on a subscription basis.
A digital image pioneer born in 2003, Photobucket could be considered old school. But the company remains true to the innovative roots that made Photobucket the top image-hosting site, when we recognized that the Internet wasn’t just a place to store and share photos.

15 years ago, Photobucket pioneered image hosting by offering one free tool to help people share images across the internet and communicate more effectively. This free tool has been the foundation of our service and we don’t want to exclude anyone from being able to use it.
As Photobucket moves forward, we want to ensure that a free accounts are still offered. In order to make this offering viable, we've introduced a subtle, removable watermark to images hosted from Photobucket that are embedded on other sites.
eBay is requiring changes to embedded images on their platform as of September 15, 2018. Make sure your Photobucket links are prepared for this change.
