Perhaps instead of telling Instagram that it has broken my heart, I should say to its owner, Facebook:
Hey you, Facebook, yeah I'm talking to you—letting our personal photos be potentially used for advertisements is not cool. You here me? NOT COOL, MAN. NOT COOL.
I actually find this pretty painful. I liked sharing photos with my friends, I liked seeing what they were up to, I liked seeing their chubby babies and their lovely sunsets and their lovely and funny lives. I might continue to share photos of landscapes etc, because I myself sort of believe in free images—but not of my family for advertising. And I don't believe that any professional photographers or stylists should allow this to happen.
So... do we delete our accounts? Do we remain on it but protest somehow? There must be a petition out there. A lawsuit.
What do you believe about this?
