“They’re going to sell your pictures, without your permission.”
That’s what I’m reading lately. The irony is A) They’re not SELLING your picutres and B) they’re not doing it without your permission. You read the TOU/TOS. Congrats, there’s a line in there that says they can change the TOU/TOS. Also, C) They’re letting you know … almost a month in advance.
Okay, here’s the dealio: I’m of the belief of if you don’t want it stolen, used without permission, or anything like that, NEVER SHARE IT ONLINE. It’s going to get stolen, used, etc. Over and over. How the heck do you think memes actually get started?
Seriously, y’all through a big snit over Facebook changing it’s TOS, and threatened to delete all your accounts. Hi, I still see you on Facebook, so that was a joke. But feel free to delete yourself from Instagram. Bye!
Yeah, I’m a bit of a bitch with this, but seriously, I don’t see the point of the panic and freak-out. I see bigger things to worry about in this world, more so than wondering if Instagram is going to use the picture of the floor vomiting to sell laundry soap.
And BIG wake-up call: have you SEEN the size that these pictures save at? You really can’t do much with them, without it getting ugly pixelation going on. So, chill out, calm down, and take a deep breath.
