Guess Instagram read my last post 🙂 – they’ve “cleared up” their new T&Cs
So, as you may know Facebook bought Instagram a while back for $1 Billion. Yesterday, they posted a new T&C:
”You agree that a business or other entity may pay us to display your username, likeness, photos (along with any associated metadata), and/or actions you take, in connection with paid or sponsored content or promotions, without any compensation to you.”
Uh, no. Not even close. I’m not using Instagram anymore until they retract this. I’m not a pro photographer (although I have sold some shots) but I’m sure as hell not going to let Facebook (or anyone else) use my pix for profit without any compensation.
What say you?

Wow – seriously?
Ice cream company’s flippant Facebook post tastes a lot like bigotry.
“A Muslim customer posted on the Wilcoxson’s brand Facebook page to ask if the gelatin listed in the ingredients list was made from pork (if so, it would be a no-no). The company president — PRESIDENT! — Matt Schaeffer flippantly responded, “We don’t deliver outside of Montana, certainly not Pakistan.”

A new study (Read it by clicking HERE) says 42 Percent of Consumers Complaining in Social Media Expect 60 Minute Response Time.
So, have the expectations been set properly?
Nice post in the Harvard Business Review about how you can market “Gangnam Style.” To quote a bit:
Apart from the catchy tune and quirky moves, how can we explain the incredible global response to “Gangnam Style,” a song that’s almost entirely in Korean? More importantly, what are the takeaways that companies can apply to their brands and products?
