Goodbye, Instagram! It was fun while it lasted!

I'm a relative newbie to the Instagram world. 

It's a fun way to pass the time with my phone when I'm waiting somewhere, bored, or spot something I want to capture really fast.

It satisfies the photographer in me when I don't have my big camera. 

I just love playing with those filters. 


But Instagram's decision to make money off of our photos without sharing the wealth? 
I just don't think that's right, do you? 

“You agree that a business or other entity may pay us to display your username, likeness, photos (along with any associated metadata), and/or actions you take, in connection with paid or sponsored content or promotions, without any compensation to you.”

(If you haven't heard about it yet, go HERE.)

So Instagram, we had some fun times... 
...but it's time to part ways.

What about you? 
Will you be breaking up with Instagram, too?

Just for fun, 
take a look at this Nickelback parody below by College Humor that I came across HERE.
(warning: there's some rough language in it!)


  1. Their new tos is deplorable in my opinion. My account was deleted today. Couldn't wait to get home and get that done. I'm about ready to do the same with FB. :(

  2. At least they didn't try to be sneaky about it. I never had a relationship with them. I still think FB paid way too much to acquire them. Thanks for the news.

  3. I was never even remotely enamored with Instagram.. its charms have always escaped me. Ditto for Facebook. I opened a FB account to view some of my sister's photos and simply never post and very rarely visit. Instagram doesn't even come that closet to piquing my interest. Seems awfully foolish on their part to go this route but I think they've been doing some backpedaling since this TOS announcement.

  4. i deleted my account and then they reversed themselves ... so i had to get a new account and a new name .. gah ... actually Instragram and FB have the same policy .. so if you are truly concerned you need to close out your FB acct too


Take a minute to share your thoughts and make my day!
