Glad I don't use Instagram...

And not just for reasons of aesthetic taste...

Hope it's not a portent of things to come from others.

Re: Glad I don't use Instagram...

I think it most definitely it's a portent of things to come, at least in the sense that large info/tech corporations like Facebook and Google are nobody's friend but their own. The databases they accumulate are gold mines of information, images included. I try to stay away from them as much as possible.

Re: Glad I don't use Instagram...

As far as I'm aware Flickr seem to be quite harmless.
Unless someone else knows otherwise.

Flickr is owned by Yahoo and if one goes to Wikipedia and looks up Yahoo and "criticisms" one can find many areas of concern.
