Online photo sharing since 1999
Micoi.com helps you share your photos online. There is no
nishe, just share what you like. The main idea with this
relaunch is to keep memories alive and give old Micoi
users back control over their own images and memories. Of
course we would love it if you want to upload something
new and share it with the world. All content id shared
with everyone who is a Micoi member. No secrets. The
structure with albums gives you a chance to share your
pictures in a context rather than just as a glimps. An
album can represent a whole trip, a party or something you
would like to group. Some content have been made public but
most require you to be a member.
What is this? (Help)
You are viewing content served by Micoi.com. Micoi.com
helps you share your photo albums. Most content require a
login but some is made public just like this album/picture.
If you wish to comment or see this content in it´s original
context you have to be a Micoi member. Please _join_, it´s
It started out during the IT-boom in the late nineties. A
group of friends in Stockholm, Sweden was sharing these new
"digital pictures" pictures with each other and anyone who
was interested. Most people did not have digital cameras at
the time but among those who had one Micoi quickly became
popular place to upload and share memories. Micoi has
brought us many friends and was a way of keep in contact
before Facebook came in and drained most communities of
The reason Micoi was taken offline in 2011 was not Facebook.
Our server got hacked and used by spammers to send spam
emails. Most likely it had nothing to do with Micoi but we
urge all users to change their passwords both on Micoi and
on other webpages where you use the same email address. Most
likely you have already done this with all these other
services being hacked out there. We are sorry for this
inconvenience. There is no indications that Micoi information
has been used or spread.
All old photos, users and comments are still available in our
new version av Micoi but we also threw in a few upgrades to
make our community more user friendly and to give our old
contributors more control over their pictures. There are some
new sharing features. You can make albums public if you wish
to share them with people who are not Micoi users. This also
opens up for you to use Micoi to serve pictures to your blog.
See “album settings” for each album. It also helps if you wish
to share albums or pictures on Facebook. There is also a whole
new notification section. This helps you and your friends to
keep up with changes on Micoi. New pictures, comments, albums
and more. We also tried to make everything more mobile
friendly with our responsive design. There are also new
routines when dealing with copyright and photographer credit.
Let us know if you come across any bugs or if you have ideas
for improvement. We have many ideas still to develop but we
also felt we had to get the site out so they remain on the
“todo”-list for now.
What lies ahead
We just wanted to reopen and give our users their memories
back and leave them in control of their pictures. We have
created a _Facebook group_ which you can join and hopefully
find some old Micoi-friends. There are no NSA backdoors
(that we know of) and we are not in any way the owner of the
material you choose to upload. We just want to keep Micoi as a
place where friends share pictures. No ambitions to become the
new Facebook on your expense, however if Mark Zuckerberg comes
by and hands us a billion dollars we will be total sellouts.
