As you’ve probably heard by now, Instagram edited the new terms of service so that the most controversial section (on advertising) was reverted to the 2010 version.
But on Tuesday, as I watched all the reactions and stories on the changed Instagram terms of service, I realized that people were grieving the loss of what they thought they knew. But it wasn’t just people.
We all know by now that the Internet is run by cats. It’s just the world we live in.
While cats often think humans are ridiculous and worried about all the wrong things (a.k.a. anything that doesn’t involve cats), the cats were just as upset over the Instagram terms of service changes as the rest of us.
And just like most of my Twitter feed over the course of Tuesday, cats also experienced the five stages of grief associated with these changes.
If it wasn’t for that update from the Instagram staff, we’d have cats to answer to right now. And it wouldn’t be pretty.
Luckily the Internet banded together to use its power to change a paragraph. Just imagine what else we can do! (Seriously though, it was nice to see Instagram respond immediately and really take into account customer feedback.)
What stages of grief did you experience during Instagram-book-gate?
