On October 2, 2012 Webshots was purchased by Threefold Photos and rebranded as Smile by Webshots. On that day, without warning, Threefold Photos surreptitiously installed Smile on thousands of computers.
Tellingly, Threefold Photos is actually suggesting people move to competitor’s photo sites. Why would they do this? I’ll expand upon this in future posts, but here’s a hint: Space ain’t just a place where the moon and the stars hang out.
Webshots shutdown made possible by Threefold Photos, Inc., Message Bus, True Ventures, Mike Sitrin, Narendra Rocherolle, Nick Wilder and Josh Fraser.
