I just exported all my Instagram photos and deleted my account. I urge you to do the same. You can use http://web2.instaport.me/ to export your pics.
Facebook has shown repeatedly that they will keep pushing the boundaries of acceptable behavior to attempt to secure a profit. Instagram (now owned by FB) thankfully backed off their stupidity this week, but more will come. I’ll keep using FB because many people I know are here (go to Google+ please!). No need to do the same for Instagram as there are a number of other great services that fill the same niche. I like Flickr. I’ve been on Flickr for years now and they’ve never tried to claim ownership of my stuff. If you like it, you can even pay them to subscribe, which might be why they don’t have to be jerks to justify their stock price. Anyway, if you dump Instagram, follow me on Flickr!
