MODEL COCO ROCHA CALLS INSTAGRAM “THE WORST MODELING AGENCY IN HISTORY”

MODEL COCO ROCHA CALLS INSTAGRAM “THE WORST MODELING AGENCY IN HISTORY”
You have been social network impaired for the past month. You might not have heard about the “It” social media site Instagram recently changing it photo sharing policies and announcing that the company would be able to sale members pictures and information without their consent. Many public figures were in outrage once they heard of the new terms of use, models especially. Kim Kardashian publicly demanded that Instagram change the new policy immediately or she would be cancelling her account; however, it’s okay for Kim K to advertise her products on Instagram, make millions, and not have to give Instagram a dime for being the platform of suggestive selling? An argument for a different debate. Another model upset with the new terms is Coco Rocha. The recognizable model didn’t offer up her account for cancellation; however, simply voiced her opinion of the matter on another popular social media network Tumblr. She types a descriptive letter to her followers on stupidity of the new Instagram terms. Labeling it as “The worst modeling agency in history”. Addressing the matter publicly Coco writes: As a model, I’m horrified by Instagram’s proposed new terms of service. As a human being I’m outraged. The new terms, set to go into effect on January 16th, pretty much grant Instagram free reign to do anything they want with your pictures and data. They can sell your username, your profile picture and any photos you’ve taken with the platform to anyone they want – oh, and you won’t see a penny of that sale. In effect, for me personally, they have become the worse modeling agency in history. Here are some of their new terms laid out blatantly: “Some or all of the Service may be supported by advertising revenue. To help us deliver interesting paid or sponsored content or promotions, you agree that a business or other entity may pay us to display your username, likeness, photos (along with any associated metadata), and/or actions you take, in connection with paid or sponsored content or promotions, without any compensation to you. If you are under the age of eighteen (18), or under any other applicable age of majority, you represent that at least one of your parents or legal guardians has also agreed to this provision (and the use of your name, likeness, username, and/or photos (along with any associated metadata)) on your behalf.” Will public outrage be enough to stop this from going into effect? We shall see. I invite each one of you to repost this or speak out in your own way. Rocha began modeling in 2002, she has witness a great rise and a few pot holes during her stint in the business but is currently referred to as the industry’s brightest talent.
