Zooomr was a website for sharing digital photos.

History[edit]

Zooomr was created in 2005 by Kristopher Tate and Michael Van Veen of BlueBridge Technologies Group.[2][3]

On June 19, 2006, Thomas Hawk, a photographer and blogger from San Francisco, was recruited by Zooomr as its so called "Chief Evangelist." On July 17, 2006, Zooomr released Zooomr 2 which introduced SmartSets, improved geotagging of photos via TagMap, and many enhancements in speed, design and performance.[1] Features such as Notes and Portals were added to Zooomr[2] on August 22, 2006.

In 2012, the web site was updated for Zoomr's 7th anniversary, announcing an "official closed beta" of a new version of the site that would discard "older concepts that kept the previous version of Zooomr too technically deep from every day users". As of March 1, 2015, there has been no further visible update to the site.

As of July 2017, Zooomr now points to https://www.usa.zooomr.com, and is now an automotive tech startup.
