Classified Social Media, Really?

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 April 2015: Instagram has finally clarified its community guidelines so you can now regram photos if you have the permission to do so from the copyright owner. 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, […]
