Goodbye TwitPic, Yfrog? Twitter Becomes #1 Photo Hosting Service

Twitter announced that it would offer an official image hosting and uploading service in August of this year, and it looks like it’s taken a chunk of out the third-parties that used to be the leaders in the space since then.

Twitter has become the number one photo sharing service on the network, with 36.1 percent of all shares coming from its official service.

How Do People Share Images On Twitter? [STUDY]

Over the past few days we’ve been reporting about Twitter’s new photo-sharing service, which will allow users to upload and attach photos to tweets directly from Twitter.com, the official Twitter apps, and inevitably your favourite Twitter client shortly after that.

The feature is rolling out over the next few weeks, and will be closely-watched by the existing Twitter photo-sharing platforms such as Twitpic, yfrog and Lockerz, who risk losing an enormous number of users – and advertising dollars – to Twitter’s official product, while Photobucket, Twitter’s image-hosting partner of choice, have so much to gain.

But just how much is at stake? This new study from analytics firm Sysomos on how people are currently sharing their images on Twitter gives us some insight into who has the most to lose.

Yfrog Has Estimated Annual Revenues Of $10m. How Do They Make Their Money?

Yfrog is the second-biggest source of uploaded photos on Twitter (and closing in on the number one spot fast). But how are they raking in the cash? By focusing their ad campaigns on their most popular users – celebrities.

Yfrog Has Estimated Annual Revenues Of $10m. How Do They Make Their Money?“If you look at the hundred users on Twitter that have most followers, they have a lot of followers. And usually they are very very famous. They could be sports superstars, movie stars, whatever. If a person like this posts a picture and a lot of their fans come to look at it, those fans are in a very specific demographic. Nike may want to advertise next to Tiger Woods. People who have special interests come in masses to our sites. It’s not the same as a bunch of noise.”

I always notice the Twitter three (Biz Stone, Jack Dorsey and Evan Williams) using Yfrog to share their pictures on Twitter – never Twitpic. Which makes me wonder if they have some kind of special arrangement in place.

And if they don’t, then maybe they should.
