It was clear something would eventually change with social media darling Instragram when Facebook acquired it a several months ago. Facebook is after all publicly traded and it doesn’t make sense that their purchase of the young upstart would be motivated by public good before self-interest – they have to keep the lights on too. Instagram’s new TOS effective January 16th will allow the company to use your photos commercially without compensation to you. The only way to opt out is to delete your account.

Drew Innis

A New Englander through and through, Drew grew up in Connecticut / New Hampshire and got over educated in Boston. He also lived on a beach in Southern California for some years. Film, photography, music and literature monopolize his time these days. Drew lives in Brooklyn, NY, eats too many cheeseburgers at the Commodore and hopes to carry on simply one day on a big piece of land by the sea without the computer or YouTube.
