The Digital Services Act (“DSA”) creates new obligations for certain digital service providers within the European Union (EU). Among these obligations, Article 24(2) of the DSA requires providers of ‘online platforms’ and ‘online search engines’ to publish ‘information on the average monthly active recipients of the services’ in the EU.
Flickr is happy to provide information on the average monthly active recipients in the European Union of its online platforms, as defined in Article 3(i) of the DSA.
We concluded that during the period 1 March 2023 to 30 September 2023 there were approximately: 139 thousand average monthly active users on Flickr in the European Union.
The calculations of the number of average monthly active recipients may be impacted by uncertainty related to the exact methodology to be applied, as well as some technical and legal constraints.
We will continue to monitor our online platform in the European Union and will continue to publish updated information on the average monthly active recipients of those services in accordance with Article 24(2) of the DSA.
This information on the use of Flickr’s online platforms in the European Union has been prepared for Article 24(2) of the DSA. This information may differ from user metrics reported in other contexts in certain key respects, including, for example, periodic reports filed with other regulatory authorities, and should not be used for other purposes.
