  • monicaegan9 Monica Egan Hi Sing,

    I think your policy primer looks great! It is a very clear and well set out presentation that clearly identifies the main points of the Terms of Use for Instagram. I also chose to focus on Instagram as well, and also made use of creative commons Flickr images. I think your layout was better than mine in this regard. I think it is certainly a great way to show the affordances of the Internet as well as making it much more engaging for the viewer, and hopefully increasing the likelihood of content retention. I think you covered the terms of use extremely well and lay out specifically what users can and cannot do when using Instagram.

    I was very surprised upon inspection of the Instagram Terms of Use that Instagram does not implement the same policy as Facebook in terms of content ownership. I found this to be interesting as there are correlations between the content, privacy and censorship between the two platforms, especially as Facebook now owns Instagram. I had assumed that users divulged their ownership of images or videos to Instagram upon uploading to the service however as stated, “Instagram does not claim ownership of any content that you post on or through the service. Instead, you hereby grant to Instagram a non-exclusive, fully paid and royalty-free, transferable, sub-licensable, worldwide license to use the Content that you post on or through the Service”(Instagram, 2013), this is not the case. What are your thoughts on ownership varying between these two platforms? Does the breadth of content available to be uploaded to Facebook change the users’ right to own their own content or not?

    I also thought your inclusion of the quote from The Guardian “Instagram will not do further action if any photos were stolen” (2013) was very clever. This external information adds depth to your policy primer.

    Overall, a very pleasing and informative policy primer very suitable for educating users on the Terms of Use of Instagram!

    Thanks, Monica.
