PRESS RELEASE: Phanfare Offers Six Months Free Service and Unlimited Storage to All Yahoo! Photos Customers Whose Pictures Will Be Deleted
Phanfare, the Premier Video and Photo Sharing Service for Families, Offers Yahoo! Photos Subscribers an Alternative That Includes Immediate Access to All of Their Full-Size Images
METUCHEN, N.J. -- Online video and photo sharing service Phanfare (http://www.phanfare.com) today announces a special offer for current customers of Yahoo! Photos. Yahoo! Photos recently informed their customers that their photos stored at Yahoo! Photos will be deleted at the end of the summer. In response, Phanfare is offering Yahoo! Photos customers the opportunity to move and save their photos from Yahoo! Photos to their own Phanfare Web sites known for family-friendly, private, secure, advertising-free albums. As an added bonus, current Yahoo! Photos customers will get six months free service when they move their photos to Phanfare.*
Unlike most other photo and video sharing services, Phanfare allows its customers to access and download all of their full-size originals at any time, for no additional cost. Like all Phanfare customers, those customers who move photos from Yahoo! Photos get unlimited storage for all of their videos and photos.
Those Yahoo! Photos customers wanting to move to Phanfare can do so immediately by simply following the easy instructions listed here: http://www.phanfare.com/yahoo. For those customers that require assistance moving their photos, they can contact Phanfare customer support by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by a toll-free phone call to (800) 699-9354.
"Yahoo! Photos provided a great way for customers to share photos and the personal memories they represent in a private environment," said Andrew Erlichson, Phanfare's CEO. "The photo-printing sites that Yahoo! Photos has highlighted as alternatives to their service offer excellent printing services but they are not focused on the sharing needs of families. For those customers whose primary goal is to share their treasured photos and videos in a secure and private environment with no ads or storage limits, a Phanfare online album is the better choice."
* Note: Six months free service is for existing Yahoo! Photos customers only and is only for new Phanfare accounts. See Phanfare Web site for details.
