A new year is upon us, and I always like to use this time to take the lessons learned from the previous 12 months and apply them as we set goals for the next 12 months. Did you achieve what you set out to accomplish in 2011? Why or why not? And what changes can be made to make your 2012 even more successful, both personally and professionally?
Here at Photobucket, we were fortunate enough to end 2011 on a high note (see my previous posts here and here). But we are even more excited to be carrying that positive momentum into 2012: Recently, the website Top Ten Reviews ranked Photobucket as #1 in their roundup of the “2012 Best Photo Sharing Service Comparisons and Reviews.” And thanks to our partnership with Twitter last year, research recently revealed that Twitter’s own photo-sharing feature (powered by Photobucket) now powers nearly half of all the photos shared on the micro-blogging site. You can read more about the findings Colleen Taylor’s GigaOm article here.
Perhaps the best part of a new year, however, is that’s there’s so much opportunity on the horizon. At Photobucket, we’ve got some great things up our sleeves for the next 12 months (I can’t spill the beans just yet, but be sure to stay tuned). But I also want to invite you to share your thoughts on how we can improve Photobucket over the course of the next year. We’re continually evolving, and everything we do is with you, our users, in mind, so please feel free to share any feedback and ideas on how we can make it the best possible experience for you.
Thanks for your continued support, and here’s to 2012!
