I teach social research methods and we talk about the difficulty for researchers now that people are disconnecting landlines. How to get a balanced phone survey when large sections (it used to be just the 'young' and 'poor')have no land line?
I have a friend who used to be a printer at a large pro photo outfit and he'd always bring home prints of weirdos, glamour shoots, etc. He had a wall full of them.
Not that i care because I would never use the service [if that is what it is called] anyway.
No plans, they say, but the language of the T&Cs clearly allows for that. It's more likely a PR-forced u-turn, that might even get their lawyers to write slightly less horrible terms for their users.
Sadly, we live in an era that forces us to accept unfair terms, small print, 96-page agreements, etc. Fortunately, peer pressure, like in this case, might help change them at times. Anyway, I do not use IG and I am not on FB, though I Tweet and blog...
