Blipfoto

That the Parliament regrets that the Edinburgh-based social media photographic site, Blipfoto, has gone into liquidation; understands that the company's assets might be acquired by Polaroid, with whom it had recently established a partnership; commends what it sees as the vision and passion of Blipfoto's founder, Joe Tree, who, with the help of a dedicated group of colleagues, staff and members, has built over the last 10 years a world-wide creativity community that share a photograph every day; hopes that any new owner will recognise what it considers the positive and collaborative nature of Blipfoto and consult and nurture its diverse user base; understands that Blipfoto’s members are using the hashtag, #blipforever, to campaign for a secure future for the site and to have ongoing secure access to their data and pictures; commends to any new owner the positive benefits of the company retaining its HQ in Edinburgh, and hopes that what it sees as this uniquely successful Scottish start-up can continue to expand its global reach and membership.
