Instagram is again stuck in another debacle, this time for their contract changes. It is a class action lawsuit filed on Friday by the Southern California-based Finkelstein and Krinsk law firm which calls on the federal court to ‘bar Instagram from changing the rules’.
Facebook (because Facebook own Instagram) announced that the complaint was “without merit.” [and]”We will fight it vigorously,”.
As a person that is an avid user of Instagram I would be honestly, devastated to see the app removed from the market. It is a great app that allows people to document moments that are personal in the form of pictures so they can share them with friends and family. It is a great tool for aspiring photographers to get their work out there and connect with other users.
This app also always people to take pics let’s be honest that are good quality and you can also edit it and play around with it, as a teenager I can say that it is one of my most worn out apps metaphorically speaking of course.
Instagram then changed their plans after an out cry over the new changes that would have been effective in January.
Instagram co-founder and chief Kevin Systrom commented on the situation in one of his blog posts he said,”I want to be really clear: Instagram has no intention of selling your photos, and we never did. We don’t own your photos, you do”.
As a user of Instagram my concern is warranted but nothing to get to worried about right?
