The Biggest Website You’ve Probably Never Heard of!

By JLP | March 28, 2007

Every morning I cruise my Bloglines account to find new and interesting stories to share with you. Today I found a story about a website called Photobucket, which is a place for people to “house” their photos and videos which they can then link to from their blogs or MySpace pages. What I found fascinating was the fact that Photobucket has over 38 MILLION members and it is adding 80,000 members per day! Wow! Oh, and Photobucketgets more than double the traffic of Flickr.

I hadn’t heard of Photobucket until this morning!

    You’ve really never heard of Photobucket? I’ve used them in the past, but I don’t like the security/segregation of the photo albums, it’s too easy for someone with access to one of your albums to see all of them.

    Personally, I don’t care for photobucket. I find the setup bizarre. I much prefer flickr and use that for all my pictures now. I find it much easier to use and the set up much easier to learn.

    I have used photobucket for the past 2 years now! It’s a great site to just host non-personal pictures and video. Can’t believe you haven’t heard of them.

    PhotoBucket… I’ve never used it (having my own hosting) but I see tons of errors and missing pictures and I believe exceeded bandwidth messages when trying to view PhotoBucket images people present.

    The bandwidth they provide is horrible. Personally, I would rather just use any number of free online web hosts to share pictures with.

    Yeah, this was noted last year and caught a lot of people by surprise. It was given as an example of navel-gazing by tech bloggers who seem to think that their online world is an accurate microcosm of the larger, normal-person-dominated world of the Intarweb.

    Miguel has a good point!

    However, I’ve been using Photobucket for a very long time. Probably over 3 years.
