At the college where I work, we have a strict policy about not accepting or displaying advertising, not licensing our images for advertising except in very limited purposes. One of my goals for the new year was to use Instagram for the college, but now I need to reconsider that, even if I do keep using it for myself (which I almost certainly will).
