Pikeo is a free photo sharing website and an online community platform powered by Orange. Registered users can share their photos with either the community of users or only their friends and family, and they can also add comments. Visitors will discover photos using a search engine or a map of the world with geo-tagged pictures, and by following a network of contacts, tags, and personal spaces.
The Pikeo project began in 2004 in the Orange Labs in San Francisco, an R&D division of the France Telecom Group that concentrates on Web 2.0 community services. From June to December 2006, the project was developed at the Orange Technocentre for public launch. A beta version of Pikeo was officially launched on 5th December at an event held at Adobe in San Francisco.
