Twitter. Facebook. Instagram. All of them wonderful ways to bring together people you know, care about, or just want to stalk. But it's easy to confuse connecting friends with friendship. Don't. All social media companies want is to make money off of you. They'll never stop trying to. And that's okay.
When Instagram changed its terms of service last week, it brought a shitstorm down on itself that clearly took the company by surprise. Rightly so. The response from users wasn't just annoyance, it was a deep sense of betrayal. How dare Instagram do this, was the refrain. I thought we had something. Today, there's even a class action lawsuit.
