A lot of photographers use instagram as an artistic outlet and this opens up the possibility of FB essentially stealing their art and selling it. And of course there is the internet privacy issues. Damn, people were wondering what revenue streams that FB could generate and I guess we just found one of them.

Facebook is the biggest marketing/ad campaign in the world. They are essentially what telemarketers use to do when they call your home and have you do a survey.

Facebook strategically implemented profiling on their website. The more questions you answer the more they know about you. Luckily for me, they only know that I am a MALE.

Let's think about it for one second, they know what books, movies, stores, authors and things you like. They also know where you go and where you check yourself in. Who your friends are and what businesses is on your friends list.

By knowing all this, if I was FB, I would sell your information such as the ones mentioned above with your email address as well, to companies. They blast you with spam and perhaps phone calls or text to you.

You like Harry Potter? No problem, they will contact you. What restaurants you like, no problem, I have sold your likes to restaurant.com and they turnaround and make contact that restaurant, that customers exist. They text you with coupons.

You like basketball? Great!...ISH is going to get that list of clients and off they go to get you to join. Things of that nature.

Facebook photos are already under the same t&c's so regular people who just have pics of themselves on facebook have no reason to panic over this (as they are already having their images used not sure if you can opt out on facebook though). There's lots of blogs around of people seeing themselves/friends photos used for dating ads and the like. This mainly is a big kick in the balls to photographers and creatives.

Default Re: Instagram's going to start selling your photos

This is pretty shady, I've got instagram, but I rarely upload pics, I doubt there are any of my pics that would ever get used, but I know a lot of girls who put up modelling pics of themselves, imagine if a strip club bought one of their pics and used them on a billboard or a flyer... This is pretty f*cked.

Every hashtag people have used on pics makes it incredibly easy for advertisers to track down the sort of pics they want. This all of a sudden makes sense. I'm not going to be uploading any more pics, that's for sure.

Google gets better info on people than FB. At least on FB, you have some control over the information they get from you. Google observes basically everything you do on the internet.

FB is used just as much as Google and here's the big kicker....FB is a social networking site. Therefore, FB knows what's going on in your life or what you are doing. Google probably knows to the extent of searching for porn.

Also, I hate how Yahoo Mail and G Mail are asking for phone number verifications.

Last time I signed up for a site, I started getting mass text messages.

Instagram withdraws policy change, won't put users' photos in ads

Well that was quick.

Most people never read the terms and agreement when they sign up for these websites. Guess you can't be too angry when something like this happens.

Damn, one of the founders (Krieger) lived in my dorm my freshman year (he was a sophomore)...he was a pretty chill guy, but a bit out there. Was this a Facebook decision, or one made by Instagram (I'm assuming the former, without having read the article)?

Doesn't really matter to me, it's not like anyone is willing to buy or sell a photo of me which most of the ones I upload are of. If so then, cool, I'll be a IG prostitute without receiving the pay.

Yeah, I have skipped those aspects of signing up. I do not post my phone number, address, or legitimate e-mail address on those sites. The email I used on Facebook is one I had in college that I have not checked in years.
