Dear Photobucket Friends:
As you may have already heard, today Photobucket announced that it has accepted an offer to be acquired by Fox Interactive Media (FIM), a division of News Corporation. This is a really big piece of news for us at Photobucket.
First and foremost, we expect nothing to change in our day-to-day operations. After the transaction is closed and finalized, the plan is to operate Photobucket as an independent, standalone company within FIM.
We plan to continue developing innovative tools that enhance self-expression and give you the best media sharing, linking and searching experience on the Web. Partnering with FIM will give us added resources and support to deliver on this vision, as well as the ability to offer new features for you — our most important audience.
If you have questions or just want to drop us a line, write a comment here on the blog, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We read all your emails and messages. Keep them coming. And most importantly, keep all the great ideas coming.
I thank you for your support, and for all the ways you teach us what is truly meaningful about the Photobucket experience. We are extremely excited about Photobucket’s future, and look forward to continuing to bring you the very best personal media site in the world.
Alex Welch, CEO, co-founder, Photobucket, Inc.
