Flickr is an online photo management and sharing application that initially launched on February 10, 2004. It was first created by Ludicorp, a company founded by Stewart Butterfield and Caterina Fake, before undergoing several ownership changes, including acquisition by Yahoo![2], Verizon Communications, and ultimately SmugMug. Flickr provides both free and premium account options, with varying levels of storage and access to features. Users can organize their images into photostreams, albums, and collections, control their privacy settings[1], and engage with other users through features like tagging and commenting. Flickr is built on standard HTML[3] and HTTP features, ensuring compatibility across various platforms and browsers. Controversies and changes in policies have marked its history, but it remains a key platform for photo sharing, offering a variety of Creative Commons licenses.

Definições de termos
1. privacy settings. This text primarily discusses the concept of "Privacy Settings." Privacy settings are a crucial feature on social networking services and other online platforms that allow users to control who can access their personal information. These settings play a pivotal role in protecting users from privacy leaks, although their effectiveness can be compromised through others' connections or by default settings that encourage oversharing. User attitudes, understanding of privacy policies, and the accessibility of privacy settings all influence personal and interpersonal privacy management. Enhancements to privacy settings, such as design improvements and the adoption of privacy by design principles, can help mitigate risks of unintentional information sharing. Companies often adjust these settings to balance user privacy with their own data collection needs. Privacy management tools, including software and trust-based negotiations, offer additional control over privacy policies.
2. Yahoo! ( Yahoo! ) Yahoo! is a prominent internet portal that was established in 1994 by Jerry Yang and David Filo. The company experienced significant growth and evolution over the years, which was marked by a series of acquisitions, partnerships, leadership changes, and various instances of rebranding. Yahoo! was initially known for its search engine and web directory and later expanded its services to include email, news, and other online services. Despite facing challenges such as data breaches and financial losses, Yahoo! has remained a significant player in the online world. The company was acquired by Verizon in 2016 and later by Apollo Global Management in 2021, which led to further changes in its corporate identity.
