Jesse Burke reacts to Instagram’s new terms on the Time Magazine blog

Jesse Burke writes: “I use my Instagram account as a visual journal or diary of sorts. I mostly post what my family and I do on a daily basis, which of course includes photos of my children. The new terms of service are not totally surprising knowing that they originated at Facebook. I have to admit it does seem like a game changer: a suicide note, as the blogosphere has deemed it. I am mostly concerned that I will have no control over where they would place or to whom they would license my images. Furthermore, my children’s faces. It’s sad that they are so focused on making money because it really has become quite a revolutionary in the social media platform. I’m not sure if I will ultimately quit, for now I am going to take a break and see how it plays out.”
