I just started out (again) on Instagram. It's always been the one social networking service that I've really enjoyed, and in the end I gave in. I think it's a quick and easy way to get a peek into your friends and family's days and to share your own days. Being on Instagram helps me keep my iPhoneography momentum going. I tend to look through my photo roll more often when I post to Instagram, instead of photos simply being swallowed by the digital realms - and never viewed. That way I can see the trends, what's going on in my life and what am I paying attention to. Are all my images similar or is there a lot of variation? It helps me develop creatively too.

As you probably know, Instagram introduced new Terms of Use as part of their new collaboration with FacebookYour photos can be used for ads. 

This time it's clearly Instagram that it pays off for, so I've just deleted my account. 

Instagram’s New Terms of Use, Translated into Plain English

"There ain't no such thing as a free lunch" We pour hours of our time into free social media. The more time we've "invested" the more unlikely we are to leave, because surely our investment must have paid off in one way or another? 

The need to be connected is, in fact, very basic in Maslow's hierarchy of needs, the psychological theory that explains the largest and most fundamental human desires. ... It is now possible to always feel loved and cared for, thanks to the efficiency of our “comment walls” on Facebook and seamless connection with everyone we've ever known. Your confidence and self-esteem can quickly be reassured by checking your number of “followers” on Twitter or the number of “likes” garnered by your photographs and blog posts. The traction you are getting in your projects, or with your business, can now be measured and reported in real time. – What Happened to Downtime? The Extinction of Deep Thinking & Sacred Space


Instagramers who are concerned about privacy and integrity are leaving Instagram. If you're thinking of leaving Instagram, you'll find that it's easy to do.
