If you’re anything like me, you enjoy a lot of the benefits that social networks afford us, but you’re wary of giving away too much information and losing all of your rights to privacy.
That’s why I was slightly dismayed to hear that Instagram, much like it’s mother Facebook, recently added a feature to allow tagging that is ON by default.
We all love our friends, but it’s probably not in anybody’s best interest to allow anybody else to tag you in photos without your explicit consent on every photo.
Here’s how to make sure that you have control:
There’s a big part of me that’s disappointed here. I know the majority of people will like this function and it will do a lot to help boost sales and everything for Instagram, but darn if I can’t say it seems like one more step away from the love of photos.
Maybe that step is too far gone, already.
I supported the kickstarter program of Pressgram for this very reason. It might not be popular, but it’s the right way to go.
What do you think? Do you feel like your privacy is something worth protecting? Am I over the top? What would you do if your students started tagging you in photos without your permission?
