‘Rich Kids of Instagram’ Are Having a Better Summer Than You Are

In today’s increasingly voyeuristic society, there’s an understandable fascination with how those with rather generous bank accounts tend to live their lives.

Your Instagram feed is about to be invaded by even more ads

In an effort to begin monetizing Instagram more seriously, the popular photo-sharing service has plans to infuse a lot more ads into user photostreams. Additionally, the Facebook-owned company announced that it may leverage information gleaned from user Facebook accounts to serve up more targeted ads on corresponding Instagram accounts.

While advertising on Instagram, in a broad sense, is nothing new, previous advertising efforts have been limited to adverts from big time companies like Levis. Under Instagram’s new rules, advertising will now be open to all comers.

Meet the man who steals your Instagram photos and sells them for $90,000

It’s well established that anything one posts online these days remains permanently etched on the Internet. The moment a tweet or a photo goes up, it’s practically impossible to scrub it from its new-found digital existence. For most people, this is no big deal as the benefits to be gleaned from sharing items like photos with friends far outweigh any concerns about privacy. But once someone starts profiting from your personal photos, the dynamics of the equation completely change.

Meet Richard Prince, an “artist” whose skill set consists of photographing other people’s photographs, adjusting them slightly, and then selling them for enormous profit. It admittedly sounds bizarre, but Prince has been making a living doing just that for decades now.

Spotless is a new iPhone app that will automatically delete troll comments on Instagram

If there is one thing that rings true on every corner of the Internet, it’s this: where there is a comments section, there will be trolls. Some people seemingly have nothing better to do than to sit around and post malicious and inflammatory comments all day, and they tend to ruin any chances of people having an intelligent conversation.

Of course, it’s not just blogs and news sites that have to worry about trolls, and Instagram users are all too familiar with that fact. But now, there may finally be an app that can rid your Instagram photo feed of any and all traces of those annoying troll comments and spam. More →

Photos of bent iPhones are popping up all over Instagram – here are the best ones

As if “Bendgate” wasn’t bad enough PR during the rollout of the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, or the fact that the iOS 8.0.1 update turned iPhones into bricks, some people thought it would be fun to post pictures of their bent iPhones on Instagram. This seems to be adding to the notion that the new iPhones will bend easily just by putting the phone in your pocket and sitting down too fast, even though Consumer Reports basically debunked that as being “overblown.”
