ONA Issues: Instagram responds to concerns about new Terms of Service →

onaissues:

After major outcry from individuals and organizations concerned with language Instagram included in their new Terms of Service, which will go into effect January 16, 2013, the company responded.

The Guardian, and manyotheroutlets, reported concerns that users’ photos could be “used in advertising, without reference to the owner, with all the payments going to Instagram”.

For media companies, this raised major questions about how their staff photos could be used, and if Instagram planned to sub-licence photos, making a profit off of photos that were shot for agencies or media outlets.

Instagram responded in a blog post:

To be clear: it is not our intention to sell your photos. We are working on updated language in the terms to make sure this is clear […] The language we proposed also raised question about whether your photos can be part of an advertisement. We do not have plans for anything like this and because of that we’re going to remove the language that raised the question. Our main goal is to avoid things like advertising banners you see in other apps that would hurt the Instagram user experience.

Even with the update from Instagram, some news organizations are still wary. Notably, National Geographic has suspended their account until the new terms come into effect, and may remove their account.  

What do you think about the new Instagram terms? Will your news organization continue to use the service? Did the update from Instagram change your organizations stance?

This thing is a functional camera!

It’s a Lego-esque mini digital camera that shoots lovely lo-fi photos (and videos). Think of it as a digital holga, but tiny! Another fun thing about it is that you can add small blocks to it, so you can personalize what it looks like. ADORB.

"I am guilty of all the smartphone sins—in essence, staring at the phone when you should be staring at life… Am I deceiving myself? Because if you are taking a picture of your children, which is to say if you are holding a camera (in the form of a phone) and snapping a picture, then are you, in that moment, looking at them? Or are you anticipating a moment in the future—it is sometimes ten seconds in the future but it could well be ten years—when you will be looking at this very moment?"

Maybe you’ve fantasized of having a camera assistant to help you with self-portraits and videos, but the thought seemed a little silly considering your iPhone only weighs 4 ounces.
Ain’t no shame. You can use the Swivl to follow your every move as it shoots video or photos. The base comes with a remote that you wear, so it’ll keep you in the frame even if you’re running circles around it!

Instagram: Two Years Later

Two years ago today, Instagram launched to the world. Since then, we’ve seen people in all different parts of the world – from Hollywood to Bhutan – join Instagram to share their lives through photos. Every day, we’re both thrilled and humbled to see the Instagram community continue to thrive, and we look forward to the many years to come.
