Nothing is sacred especially online. Posting and sharing pictures or too much information or detail can lead you into trouble. So be careful what you’ll post, and think first before you post it.
You don’t know all the people who use Instagram and they can be a possible suspect if they go way beyond than what you expect them to be. Your free Instagram followers can be it, or followers you already know, like your friend can do such a thing like for example they’ve stole a picture from you without asking permission first. But there are other cases too that somehow lead you into trouble in using Instagram.
Some of these ways are:
• Posting selfies that are illegal. For example taking pictures of yourself using illegal drugs, guns or any other materials that are illegal in your country. This can you into serious troble and might lead you jail.
• Posting pictures that gave other users too much information about you. This can lead you into trouble since we cannot know other users or even your free Instagram followers might have psychological problems that want to hurt other people. It can help them give information about who you are, where you live and what you’ve been doing.
• Posting pictures just like what a porn magazine do. Taking pictures half-naked or fully naked gives other users the feeling of being disgusted. Plus it’s not good for young audiences too.
Another example of this is through revenge. Some teens who experiences break-up with their loved ones, doesn’t know how to move on and feels like revenge would make them feel better. Taking nude or explicit pictures from their past relationship without the owner’s permission and post it in Instagram will lead them to serious trouble causing them to be arrested and be put to jail.
• Posting photos of someone without asking for their permission seems easy and harmless to do. But sharing this to other users will make you liable in what we call copyright infringement.
These are some of the ways pictures in Instagram which can develop and create criminal cases. Always remember to know what risks you can get when posting and sharing photos online.
