Tumblr has become the refuge for fun, fandom-loving crazy-good types on the Internet, and it’s a place where people are free to be who they are. It’s a place where gender and sexuality is accepted, protected, and celebrated, fandoms are respected, social justice is fiercely upheld, and insane humor is cultivated and allowed to thrive – like kudzu, yes, but we kinda like it that way.
Tumblr is made up by users all over the world who are open and honest about the things their into – fitness enthusiasts, TV show fandoms, artists, lifestylers and scenesters, crafters, DIYers, scholars, activists, film-makers, independent start-ups – the list goes on and on. There are tumblogs dedicated to a certain aesthetic, or TV show, or music or band. There are tumblogs that even answer other users’ questions as particular characters (MLP:FiM’s Pinkie Pie, Steam Powered Giraffe’s song characters, and Gravity Falls’ Dipper and Mabel are just a few.)

After their Terms-Of-Service stunt last year, a number of people have sworn off Instagram for good. However, those filters and effects are habits that are certainly hard to quit, and have left people either having withdrawal symptoms, or have sent them crawling back to Instagram. What to do?
Here are some alternatives you can try out and decide for yourself if they sate your filter hunger.
The biggest contender for the top spot is Flickr. As we mentioned in the previous post, it now accepts users with open arms and has its own share of scrumptious filters to offer. You can also try BeFunky, another photo-editing app that gives a lot of choices within their choices of looks. Last but not least is Pixlr-o-matic, with an easy-to use interface with filters, photo accessories, and frames to choose from. They all make photo-sharing a cinch – with just a few clicks of your mouse or a few touches on your smartphone, you’ve instantly made a filterific picture you can share with your friends.
By January 16, millions of users all over the world will most likely be kissing Instagram goodbye and deleting their accounts – for good.
According to their first-released statement, users who have agreed to Instagram’s new terms and conditions will be giving Instagram permission to sell their photos to any company and used in advertisements. This may not be a big deal to majority of Instagrammers who most take pictures of food, landscapes, and silly faces set to artsy filters, but this is a matter of great concern to people who make living off their images, like, say, bloggers and photographers. Even Mark Zuckerberg’s own wedding photographer wouldn’t have any of it.
Since the uproar, Instagram has issued a follow-up note and promises to reword its terms. However, many users – including National Geographic, no less – are still suspicious and suspending their use of the web app until further notice.
Another company, this time a fitness company, has decided to take advantage of the latest technology to market their services. The Snap Fitness Inc. has recently announced plans to launch a new online tool for members of its gyms. This large and still growing chain of 24-hour fitness gyms (based in Chanhassen) has formed partnerships with nutritional supplement company Bioceutica (based in Newbury, Mass.-), Health Solutions – a health care assessment firm based in Wisconsin, and HyperStrike , a California fitness firm. to create a Web site for customers to customize their workout schedule. The new tool will enable customers to design a personalized fitness plan complete with designed customized workouts and nutritional assessments. And all these with the help of wellness coaches.
