It happens so many times that I’m a huge fan of a website and inevitably they are acquired by another organization or they do a crazy redesign of the site that I can’t stand. Or lately there are sites that start out free and then add a fee. I don’t mind paying a reasonable fee for something I use all the time but then a year later the fee doubles.
I hardly ever use Flickr as it is but I’ve been paying their pro rate. But now that’s doubling I think that’s going to be one more social media site that I nuke.
Another version of this is a company that I’ve used and liked is bought out by some big corporate that destroys everything good about the original place. But I don’t figure that out until I’ve purchased something from them and have terrible customer service and don’t like what I bought.
