Remains of the Day: Instagram Responds to User Backlash. I never got the appeal of Instagram. I am a serious amateur photographer, and I have spent decades looking for a point and shoot that creates pure shots on the go. So, when smart phone cameras became more than competent shooters, I was elated. I only had to carry a heavy SLR for specific photo shoots. So, using filters and gadgets to take a perfectly exposed photograph, and turn it into something you could have taken with a Brownie back in the day just didn't appeal to me. Then, when Facebook acquired Instagram, I knew that Facebook, scrambling for ways to monetize its users, would try something to monetize Instagram. So, while Instagram really didn't ever claim "ownership" of its users photos, modifying the Terms of Service to allow it to use photos to sell amounted to the same thing. If I can use your image to make money, don't I really "own" it? Now, Facebook and Instagram are backpedaling. Family, friends, why are you trusting your lives to these companies? I still go to Facebook to keep up with the people I love. However, I wish they would meet me somewhere else. I don't like the neighborhood.
