Photobucket snaps a portrait of success
online photo-sharing site. But if you’re not a MySpace user, you’ve
probably never heard of it.
Denver-based Photobucket provides a one-stop
shop for uploading pictures and videos all over the Web at sites such
as Craigslist, eBay and, most prominently, red-hot social network
MySpace. So many teens and young adults use it that the site has more
than 40% of all online photo-sharing traffic, considerably more than
longtime photo leaders Kodak Gallery, Shutterfly and Yahoo Photos,
according to measurement service Hitwise.
Photobucket serves up 3 billion online images and videos daily for its 41 million members; 85,000 new members sign up every day.
