"As the first Website to provide users with embed codes to share photos back in 2003, sharing has always been at Photobucket’s core," said Alex Welch, President of Photobucket.

"Our newest updates make it easier than ever for Photobucket’s users to quickly share their favorite memories online through any number of Web outlets."

Photobucket users will also be able to embed "live" photo and video slideshows that are updated in real time as users upload new content to their account. Additionally, Photobucket is launching its "My Photobucket" application for Facebook that allows user’s entire photo album to be displayed on their Facebook profile.

Photobucket has expanded the functionality of its mobile WAP site, the new version offers better navigation of the site and allows users to view ratings and comments.

The latest efforts by Photobucket may help it to maintain its lead in market share despite a recent decline due to fewer visits to MySpace.
