Flickr announces changes From http://flickr.com/lookingahead we note the following:

Free accounts will soon be limited to 1,000 photos or videos. Flickr isn't Flickr without the contributions and participation of our free members, and we remain committed to a vibrant, free offering.
Learn more

Flickr Pro is better than ever, and at less than half the cost of Apple, Amazon, or Google, [for now, anyway] it’s the best deal in photography—hands down. In addition to the unmatched community you love, Pros get these perks:

Unlimited Storage. The only limit is your imagination. All Pros may now upload as many photos as you can take, always at full resolution.
Ad-Free Browsing. Focus on what matters with a fully ad-free Flickr experience for you and your visitors.
Advanced Stats. See which of your photos are trending now, and which have performed the best over the life of your Flickr Pro account.

Plus all these great new Pro-only features:

Premier Product Support. Skip the line. Flickr Pros now receive priority assistance from our new world-class support team. Available now.

[Promises:]

More Partner Discounts. Save on photography essentials. Discounts on Creative Cloud from Adobe, 50% off a custom portfolio site on SmugMug, gear from Peak Design, and more. Coming November.
Advanced Stats on Mobile. Stats in your pocket. All the photo stats you know and love, available in the app. Coming November.
Increased Exposure. All Pro members as of January 1, 2019, are eligible for priority exposure in the next iteration of Explore. Coming early 2019.
New 5K Photo Display Option. Look your best. Your images are beautifully optimized for any screen, from smartphone to jumbotron. Pro images display at resolutions up to 5K. Coming early 2019.
10 Minute Videos. More time to tell your story. Play back videos for up to 10 minutes, increased from 3. Coming early 2019.

If you are a free member with more than 1,000 photos or videos, you will have ample time to upgrade to Pro (for 30% off your first year) or download your photos and videos.

Free members with more than 1,000 photos or videos uploaded to Flickr will no longer be able to upload new content after Tuesday, January 8, 2019 unless they upgrade to Pro. After February 5, 2019, free accounts that contain over 1,000 photos or videos will have content deleted -- starting from oldest to newest date uploaded -- to meet the new limit. Members may always choose to download content over the limit at any time prior to these dates.

New Simple Login! Coming in January, there will be no need for a Yahoo account to use Flickr.

MeWe Welcome Group

Some new users are finding it difficult to find people and make connections on MeWe since right now you can't see a person's posts prior to requesting a connection.

The site has robust Groups functionality, and they are a great way to connect, but some of us have found that just because two people like gardening, for example, that doesn't mean they have anything else in common. (And even folks that enjoy gardening might be less interested in talking about it every day than doing it.)

This situation will change in the near future with the addition of all-MeWe posts and public pages.

Until then, and even after, some of us thought it would be helpful to create an open community where people can introduce themselves and/or find new folks to follow.

This group is for new people and those interested in making connections.

This is going live in less than an hour
Thanks to +Leighton Marjoram for sharing this in MeWe
"I'd like to welcome and give a shout out to all the Google+ users that are migrating over to MeWe! We want to make you feel at home and I know you have some questions about features.

Here's a quick update on upcoming features.

MeWe Pages - These will go live later this month! This will allow you to create business and fan pages on MeWe where you can make open posts for all of MeWe to see and share.

Public Posts - We're already working on these and they will go live soon. On each of your timeline posts you'll get to decide if you want it so just your contacts can see the post or if you want everyone on MeWe to be able to see the post.

Sharing - I know right now it works more like a copy than a share. When public posts roll out, sharing will be fixed so it gives credit to the original poster.

I'm sure you have a lot more questions so if you'd like to ask them to me live, I'll be talking with Uncle Matt tonight at 4:00pm PST discussing MeWe. You'll be able to send in your questions via live chat. Here is the YouTube link"

Forgot about MeWe. I joined a while ago and they do have groups (Communities) to join. I believe they have a phone app too.
