Techcrunch Blog Archive Webshots to relaunch with a Web 2.0 look Mike Arrington is out today about the new Webshots alpha release that is underway right now with regards to a complete new redesign and update of the site.
I’ve seen some of the preliminary screens and concepts of the alpha and it does seem to represent a significant improvement and upgrade for the site. Webshots was of course the big kid on the block before Flickr came along and even today still has almost twice as many photos as Flickr. But over the past few years their growth on a percentage basis, while steady, has not matched that of Flickr. Their buzz has not matched Flickr either.
It will be interesting to see if a revamped Webshots can help revitilize the excitement and buzz that this site had in the past.
