Yesterday, news broke that Instagram — freshly partnered with the privacy-haters over at Facebook — is trying to make money off of the content we all upload and share with each other for free with the platform they have provided. Terrible! I mean, jokes aside, it is genuinely a little perturbing to think that they can license your pictures at will. At the same time, though, the actual likelihood of that happening is miniscule, and anyway, Facebook already pretty much does the same thing. In fact, remember all those other times we got mad and swore we’d never use any of this stuff again?
