  30. 30. Instagram is not an archive. If you want to archive pictures use flickr. Teens have already deleted pictures from the instagram account. Which it totally fine. David Gallin-Parisi, March 2014
  31. 31. Saving an Instagram picture. This requires some HTML knowledge. The file name usually includes “distillery” somewhere in the name, something which came from the app Burbn. Instagram is the updated version (Panzarino). David Gallin-Parisi, March 2014
  32. 32. Use instagram pics to make content Perhaps like this poster. David Gallin-Parisi, March 2014
  33. 33. David Gallin-Parisi, March 2014
  34. 34. Privacy Privacy settings exist on Instagram. If a user sets their account to private you need to send a request to view their pictures. The library account is not to be used for this. Please respect people’s privacy. David Gallin-Parisi, March 2014
  35. 35. Safety What to do if you notice something unsafe or sense that somebody is hurt as evidenced by what is posted on instagram? It’s hard to tell people’s identity based on their changing user names. David Gallin-Parisi, March 2014
