Do as Instagram says not as Instagram does, really? I recognize it: I have developed an healthy interest for the terms of service (TOS) of social media platforms since I invested 19 hours of my life reading from top to bottom several of them when I was working on a conference presentation last year. Call […]

Social Media TOS & Copyright for #highered Crash Course [#heweb13 SLIDES]: Redacted, but NOT Classified
Classified Social Media, Really? No, not really :-) I know it’s Thursday – and not Tuesday, but I’ve just found a way to upload the presentation about social media terms of service I gave at the #heweb13 conference 3 days ago without causing any trouble (hopefully). Taking a hint from classified documents, I used my […]
Social Media TOS Tuesday at #heweb13: To break or not to break the TOS with your #highered accounts?
Tuesday is social media TOS day! I gave my last scheduled presentation about the topic yesterday at the High Ed Web conference in Buffalo, NY (Donna Talarico blogged my session for LINK!), but I will keep sharing insights on social media TOS for a few more weeks.

Ah, contests on social media platforms… Nothing like a contest to generate some tweets, right? They are a great tool to increase engagement (the promise of a prize is a powerful motivator) without breaking the bank (only a few prizes will help engage many hopeful participants). Since the beginning of times (well, almost), contests, sweepstakes […]
It’s Tuesday, so you know the drill: it’s time for Social Media TOS Tuesday!

Social Media TOS Tuesday: How to share Instagram photos on Facebook without risking DMCA complaints #hesm #highered
My first Social Media TOS Tuesday post on re-Instagraming Instagramed photos from others generated a lot of interest and some questions last week. In my Social Media TOS Tuesday posts (that I’ll update if any change happens), I’m addresssing some of the points I see most often infringed in higher education as well as any […]
UPDATE Nov 7, 2014: Isn’t it time to update @Instragram Community Guidelines about “regramming” photos? Social Media TOS Tuesdays? The headline might be a bit lame, but, the goal of this new series of posts isn’t. Over the past few months I’ve taken an unusual (and unhealthy) interest in the terms of service (TOS) of […]
