Agree. The death of Flickr started with their failure to keep innovating. Say what you want about Facebook's relentless redesigns, but Flickr looks and works almost exactly the same as it did 4 years ago - or at least it did 3 months ago when I cleared out my Pro account and uploaded all my photos to SkyDrive instead. Ever since Facebook came along I used Flickr only as an archive, and SkyDrive gives me that for free.
LiveJournal went the same way. Mrs AT still uses it, and in nearly 10 years (no, really), they have barely added any useful features - and the less said about how dated it looks now, the better. In that time WordPress has gone from not even existing to the most used blogging system in the world.
