Photobucket Media Alert
WHO: Photobucket (http://photobucket.com), the Web’s premier standalone photo and video-sharing site, and Yahoo! Mail
WHAT: Photobucket’s new application, developed by Photobucket using the Yahoo! Mail application platform, allows users of new Yahoo! Mail in the U.S. to access and share photos via Photobucket.
Through a simple point-and-click interface, the application’s users can do the following from within the Yahoo! Mail interface:
- Access and share their personal photos, if they already have a Photobucket account
- Search Photobucket’s repository of more than 7.5 billion public images, whether or not they have a Photobucket account
- Conveniently send all images as links with thumbnail images, rather than as cumbersome attachments; E-mail recipients who want to view larger images simply click on the links to be directed to the full-size images on Photobucket.com.
WHEN: Application launches today, June 5, 2009 at 8:00 a.m. Pacific
WHERE: Mail.Yahoo.com. Yahoo! Mail users who currently don’t have access to Yahoo! Mail applications, can get more information and sign up here: http://overview.mail.yahoo.com/applications
