AP: Instagram active users are down half of last month.
FB said that there were about 100 M accounts but AP confirm that most of them abandoned or might forget their user names/ pw. Very few accounts were opened after FB anounced to use the users' pictures without any compension.
Hey media parrot, AppStats methodology has already been discredited as misleading--only reports active users logged in directly. Let's see, Facebook buys Instagram, changes Facebook app to more tightly integrate the two, meaning a logged-in Facebook user can be on Instagram as pass-through. THEN lazy media reports THAT as reduced daily users of Instagram, even though ALL Facebook users (1 billion) could be using Instagram and never show up in AppStats. And detec_tive repeats it. Smart!
what about non-users -- who never signed up - whose pics are out there. Can they sue for invasion of privacy? Use of image w/out authorization? suprised more folk haven't done this anyway. Your friend or relative might post your picture, even if you have no account and do not want to be on FB AND you have never authorized FB to use your image.
pits you against your relatives if you sue FB. breakin' the law here...breakin' the law. Surprised more underemployed lawyers haven't picked up on this cash cow.
