Snapjoy was a photo hosting and sharing service founded in 2011. It was acquired by Dropbox in December 2012 and murdered in 2013.
- We’re excited to announce that Snapjoy is joining Dropbox!
- We built Snapjoy because we wanted a better experience to enjoy our own photos -- we love the product and use it every day. The support we’ve received from people around the world is humbling.
- As a fellow Y Combinator company, we’ve always admired Dropbox and loved their product. From the moment we met the founders, it was clear we shared a common goal. By combining forces with their amazing team, we can leverage the technology and scale of their platform and focus on what matters -- delivering an incredible photo experience to over 100 million people.
- So what happens next? First and foremost, don’t worry -- your photos are safe! Though we won’t be accepting new signups, existing users can continue to use Snapjoy to share and enjoy photos just as you do now. We’ll be in touch with more information over the coming weeks.
- We'd like to thank everyone who trusted us and helped make Snapjoy what it is today. Stay tuned, the best is yet to come.
