User Manual: Don’t Instagram Natural Disasters
By Sam Biddle
Instagram is a nice thing. It’s fun to peek at the lives of others, and it’s fun to make our photos look fun. But there’s nothing fun about a hurricane people are dying in, and scenes from a horrific crisis don’t deserve to be drenched in your sepia.
I beg to differ. You don’t need to apply filters. So what if you do though? It’s not hurting anyone and in fact provides a way of documenting the process. Would you tell people not to take videos or pictures of 9/11? Of course not.
