Imgur picks Yahoo as their sugardaddy

24 sec read

There were plenty of big companies wanting to take Imgur under their wing, but the top image hosting site ended up heading to Yahoo for support.

Imgur, the image hosting site, receives 100 million monthly unique visitors, it announced last month. That’s big.

The company still isn’t, though — tiny and bootstrapped, it is based in San Francisco and has fewer than 10 employees. It’s marginally profitable — from a combination of advertising, donations, pro accounts and enterprise deals — and has been since nearly the beginning. Imgur (pronounced “imager”) was founded by Alan Schaaf, who created it when he was an Ohio University undergrad as an alternative to the less-than-ideal existing image-hosting services available to Reddit users.
