I’m pretty mad. I use Instagram. I have children who use Instagram. I don’t like their new TOS policy. I don’t like their clarification. I don’t like that they say they listen to us. I don’t like it Sam I Am. Instagram wants to reserve the right to sell my photos and your photos and your children’s photos to third parties for ads and oh, they don’t even need to tell me, you and us.
So let’s take action.
If you would like to delete your account and find something better start here:
1. First you can download all your all of your photos, because after all they are pretty cool photos, to your computer. You can down load all your Instagram photos using Instaport’s website.
2. Then you can get to the good stuff and permantly kill, delete and remove your Instagram account Forevs.
It does not appear as though you can delete your account from the Instagram App. I believe you can only delete your account via their website. To delete your Instagram account click there “I want to delete my account” page. You will need to have your username and password handy so you can log on to their site to delete your account.
3. Tweet @instagram that you deleted your account and why. Boom.
4. Find an alternative to Instagram. In my opinion the front runner and best photo taking, photo filter and photo share iPhone App is Snapseed. You can download Snapseed here and it’s free.
Let’s not forget those photo collecting vets, Flickr. They’ve released a new version of their apps. What did they add on this new release? Filters, of course! You can download Flickr iPhone App free here.
I’ll add more as I research more Instagram alternatives. Know of any other good ones?
Now back to 8 bit goodness…
