Instagram, Path, PicPlz, TwitPic, TinyPic, etc.

What do you think of the new photo sharing sites?

My thought is that these services are the future but will not survive on their own. Their innovation and technology will be bought and merged into larger services. As of today none of these can compete with Facebook, Flickr, etc.

Are these services anything outside of the tech world? :)  You have your answer.

That said; I do love them, and they are great for use with Twitter. But, for sharing personal pictures of friends and family and having friends and family comment on them... for most, they will not cut the mustard.

A great article discussing these services can be found at The Next Web.
