When you first click on the site, , this banner appears “Set your Instagram free! 3506 people are releasing their Instagram photos under a Creative Commons license.”
You automatically want to share your photo’s with others, right?
Are you setting your photo’s Free, or just letting people use them Free?
In the true spirit of sharing, your Instagram photos can now become a part of the expansive digital commons. I Am CC, a third-party app created by developer Philip Neustrom, appends a selected Creative Commons (CC) license to Instagram photos, enabling users to release their work to be freely shared while still retaining their rights.
Neustrom says the app was inspired by Flickr, which has comprehensive features for CC-licensing photos and videos, and for searching for such content.
Flickr case study
“Making my photos available on Flickr using a CC-license has made wonderful things happen. My photos have been used in classrooms, in books and on blogs. They have been used to illustrate articles in Wikipedia or help charities’ fund-raising campaigns.” — Lars Plougmann.
Instagram, the free-of-cost, mobile-only photo sharing program and social network, has over 80 million users, and over 1 billion photos uploaded in its feed. Even if a fraction of these photos are made available under CC license to the public, it could lead to the making of a voluminous repository of free images that could be built upon, modified, remixed, or used as they are. As Neustrom suggests, such a repository could make a huge impact on the free culture movement.
We hope that I Am CC, like Flickr, enables users with applying for licenses selectively to their photos. It would only befit the essence of social media – create, share, remix, & share.
But what do you think? Would you want people you have never met using your photos?

Always embracing digital disruption – Special interest in changes in consumer behavior, how will they impact on the business
Loving social media was born from a love of digital communication and the passion for guerrilla marketing over 15 years ago I discovered Myspace and then Facebook. They did wonders for my optical business in then evolved for me doing friends social media then hiring an apprentice her salary was covered for all the friends and colleagues social media. In 2019 the opticians (Goodlooking Optics) that I owned merged with another optician the merge didn’t go perfectly and there was a conflict so I decided to completely devote myself to love social media. in January of 2019 I sold all the customers of loving social media in preparation for this big merge which I then regretted. today loving social media has 24 clients a pure passion of getting your website optimised the Page 1 with a joined up approach using social PPC And SEO Like all self-respecting digital companies, we know that we are always learning because things are always changing!
