Do We Really Hate Instagram, or Is It Based on Something Deeper?

We at Fstoppers often talk about Instagram with a note of positivity, but not everyone tends to agree that Instagram is a “cool” thing or worthy anyone’s time.

Instagram Adds New Video Feature With 13 Special Filters

Today, Instagram rolled out a new update to their iOS and Android app adding a new video capture button along side the camera button.

PBS’ Idea Channel poses an interesting question, “Is a tagged Instagram more than just a photo?”

There is and has been a lot of discussion going on about Instagram. Does it cheapen photography, or is it the best thing to ever happen to photography?

UK Government Passes “Instagram Act,” Are Your Photographic Rights In Jeopardy?

If you have you ever uploaded a photo to Facebook, Instagram or Flickr (that means pretty much all of you) you might want to read this.

Instafail! Instagram Explains New Terms Of Service

Earlier I posted about Instagram’s new terms of service. Instagram has now released a statement concerning their new terms of service that was under the scrutiny… of the entire internet. Following in the footsteps of sites like Twitpic it seems that Instagram either got ahead of themselves or didn’t think that users would catch on to its confusing and/or misleading jargon on its TOS update announcement. In a statement entitled, ‘Thank You, and we’re listening…‘ on their blog, Instagram clears up some of the perplexing language on the new terms of service. [more]
