National Geographic Is Suspending Posts on Instagram Because of Instagram's New Icky Terms of Service

Though Instagram has backpedaled a bit on whether or not it will sell your Instagram photos to advertisers, people are generally wary to trust a company backed by Facebook when it comes to privacy. National Geographic, a company who has a real reason to be sorta ticked off at all this since its pictures are actually good, has decided to suspend posts to Instagram.


In a post on Instagram (heh), National Geographic said:

@NatGeo is suspending new posts to Instagram. We are very concerned with the direction of the proposed new terms of service and if they remain as presented we may close our account.


Hopefully more big name Instagram accounts follow suit. Or maybe you'll close down your Instagram account in solidarity. Either way, as word spreads of Instagram's changes, the more unhappy the mob gets and the better chance for new good change (as opposed to the new bad change). That's the hope anyway.

Oh and thanks a lot Facebook for bungling Instagram. You ass. We should've known. [Instagram via @NickBilton]

Here's an idea. If you don't want something taken from the internet. Don't post it to the fucking internet. Especially Instagram. Besides. The TOS has changed.
