    It is more of a social media site than a photo storage site due to not being able to organize by folder, generate linking coding, and very limited sizing restrictions

    It is a self hosting service which requires not only your own server and a heap of stuff, but also considerably more technical knowledge than Photobucket, or any other picture hosting service.
