Nat Geo’s ballsy response to #instagram ‘s legal changes…#instablowback and updates on #elephantjournal .com front page.

Ballsy. Money. From a major, respected, photo-oriented outfit, no less.

Here’s my idea for an easy, profitable, awesome, fun fix that would benefit user and Instagram/Facebook alike.

Instagram is “listening”! Keep sharing the noise. Here’s their update.

    Dig it.

  2. It appears from Instagram's public statements that National Geographic has bought the gossip, along with everyone else sharing the rumor. http://blog.instagram.com/post/38252135408/thank-
    With that in mind, when you share any photos in social media…you have to know that advertising will be all around those photos (including advertising you may be morally opposed to). The web has changed and the rights associated with pictures is in the process of changing in realtime.

  3. You should post this kind of video more often because we can learn many things.

  4. The most important lighting to consider for the purposes of aging in place is both general and task lighting.

    I suspect they try tactics like this to see how severe the outrage will be. If not too bad, they proceed with it. If extremely strong outrage, they back off. Not a bad idea unless you antagonize the public (and National Geographic) so badly that they simply refuse to use Instagram ever again. In that case, modifying your Terms of Service, to make them more appropriate, is too little too late. (I hope that’s what will happen. Any company as morally bankrupt as this deserves the consequences.)
