PicFor.Me is 2 years old today

    Here again, there is a holiday in the country, our brainchild Social bookmarks on pictures TWO years, date of birth, we consider the day when the first post about our service was written . Over the year, our audience has grown 4 times, and the number of bookmarks is already measured in millions. We have added registration / authorization via twitter, facebook, google. Our users can be united in groups , so that you can collect pictures together with other users, an example of such a Faces group (there are more than 400 participants). One of the most interesting features is to help localize picfor.me in your native language.

    So it was added Spanish, Turkish and French. We are preparing to launch Romanian and Esperanto !!!

    We have a chat in which users can both write to each other and communicate via webcams. There you can see which of your friends are online.

    But on the Live page you can see what pictures your friends add, but in truth, it has not yet been implemented so that it would be called a “real-time update”.

    The image hosting service Bildero.com began to cooperate with us , which provide us with their servers for storing images, and we need this, because the traffic over the past month was 14TB, which of course requires fault tolerance.

    Recently opened a section on the sale of photos sale.picfor.meThus, we want to earn some more money and help others to earn it.
