Own Your Content

Om Malik on Instagram’s Updates:

I feel sad for photographers who think their future is on Instagram and the social network it brings. They don’t realize that they are there to help sell tchotchkes. 

The latest “features” added to Instagram provide a timely reminder that the only safe haven is owning one’s content. A personal website and domain name remains the most reliable way to avoid your content serving as feed stock for a commercial enterprise.
