I finally clicked on the info link on the PB login page about their proposed changes. I wanted to understand what they were talking about and what 3rd party hosting was.

3rd party hosting according to PB is the action of embedding an image or photo onto another website such as a forum. So when the no 3rd party hosting takes effect all PB accounts free or paid except for the Plus 500 account will not be able to post photos on another website or forum. Also it's about the ads they say they aren't getting any revenue from.

From what I read my Plus50 PB account will be affected with this 3rd party hosting thing after Dec 31, 2018. That is when the non 3rd party hosting kicks in on my PB account. So I will then be closing out my PB Plus50 account.

So glad I moved my favorites to Flickr some time ago now. I will not have to download photos from PB to transfer to Flickr.

And so it goes.

I have all of the pictures that I've taken stored on an external hard drive, so if I can't access them from PB I'll just get them from it. I've been uploading them to Flickr slowly but surely as I have the time.

PB has updated the message since it first appeared with more explaination. I printed it out so I could thoroughly read it.

It says....
If you were a Plus Account subscriber in good standing as of June 1, 2017, you will continue to have all the privileges you have enjoyed INCLUDING 3rd PARTY HOSTING UNTIL DECEMBER 31, 2018 as long as you maintain your subscription.

Non Plus 500 Account subscribers THAT PURCHASED AFTER June 1, 2017 will not have access to 3rd Party Hosting.
