Are you upset with the “clarification” of Instagram’s TOS, allowing them to sell ads against your photos and get paid to license YOUR name, likeness and photos to other businesses?
Maybe you are, but you’re not quite ready to kick the habit of their cool filters? If so, here’s a quick hack to avoid seeing your newborn’s photo next to an ad for Pampers…or birth control.
Step 1: Take amazing photo. (Or not.)
Step 2: Apply Instagram filter.
Step 3: Close out Instagram, turn on Airplane Mode or the equivalent. (Alternatively, have an AT&T account.)
Step 4: “Share” your Instagram, failing miserably because you’re in Airplane Mode. (Apologies to C.C. Chapman for sharing his photo, but at least I’m not selling ads next to it.)
Step 5: Remove photo from Instagram.
Step 6: Share on your terms! (Facebook not recommended.)
Note: If you’d like to download all of your photos and nuke your account, this Wired article shows you how.
