Instagram (www.instagram.com) was sold to facebook. That we all know. But my question is, what will happen with my photos that I uploaded on instagram?
Such fishy behaviour made many users switch to other photo communities that handle and respect privacy and author’s rights more carefully. Like EyeEm (www.eyeem.de), a Berlin based photo community that might profit from the latest spectacular facebook purchase.
Florian Meissner, co-founder of EyeEm says ‘this was the best that could happen to us’ (which might be common marketing bla bla) but – ‘… user interaction multiplied by the factor 4 over night’ as all rights remain with the author/ the people who took and uploaded their content to EyeEm.
Again, trust makes the difference for user behaviour.
