The Instagram Outrage

I have been fascinated by the vitriol outrage that has been published on the various social media outlets related to Instagram’s change in its policy regarding the use of subscriber’s photos. Here are my thoughts:

1: We use Instagram without paying a fee. It was fairly obvious at some point the app must be monetized. We find images to be very personal & rightly so but if you publish that content you inherently lose rights to privacy.

2. Instagram is owned by Facebook.

3. I will be removing my Instagram account. I used Instagram as a platform primarily to share personal photos. As such, it’s no longer the platform for me.

For apps that do not commandeer the rights to your images I would consider Snapseed (Note they are owns by Google) & Camerabag.
