The Origins of Instagram.
What I think is significant for photographers - scroll down, second bullet point under 'Don't bully anyone...' where it says 'Officially you own any original pictures...' But..... (there's always a 'but' isn't there?)
And yeah, it's for kids/parents but is anyone looking at terms to know how you're allowing your work to be used before signing up to use a site?
Daryl I think it would help you to keep working on bringing up your skill level to be competitive along with learning about marketing and business aspects, etc. ASMP just did a webinar this week - they have them periodically, you don't have to be a member, and they'll send a link to be able to watch it later. Sometimes they're about marketing and they've done them on using social media. March is about contracts, April is on copyright.
I appreciate your feedback, but I'm not sure what you're implying here... my work is certainly competitive as it stands. I can always improve, but what I have is marketable.
There's some interesting articles on Instagram (and other social media) causing depression or other negative influences on mental health:

For me personally, it triggers my compulsive behaviour a lot, the stress to always create new content and upload and 24/7 being able to check interactions like/follow/comments. The fear of missing out, and things like that.
Lots of users think they have expectations from others, the need to deliver.
Maybe I'm explaning this wrong, my English is really bad. Anyway, the articles above explain it better.
Yearly I do a digital detox for a month, it creates a lot of headspace.
How do you guys experience this?
