Lawers are about to mess up the emerging sharing economy. The question that is posed by a fatal accident on New Years Eve is whether consumers who make some money on the side by offering their services on social network sides like uber are covered under any insurance. Normal businesses have insurance, but insurance in the peer-to-peer marketplace is much more difficult to handle. When is someone working, for example, and when is one just a consumer? These are all important questions that can put an end to collaborative consumption just as it is about to take off.

 

From the article: "By the logic of the sharing economy, however, having an app open isn’t necessarily the same as the driver of a traditional taxi eying the sidewalks for a new fare. In theory, an Uber X driver can work as little or as much as he or she wants, and accept or reject any fare. Having the app open might mean a driver is looking for the next passenger. Or it could the driver is just checking out how many other drivers are on the road. Or the driver could have been working but then decided to head to a party without closing the app. Or the driver could be running errands and have the app open casually in case a passenger pops up somewhere between the grocery store and the mall. In those scenarios, whether a driver is “working” or not gets fuzzy."

Are you thinking about putting your business on Instagram? Are you looking for content ideas for this increasingly popular mobile social platform? Read further to discover how you can use Instagram to give your business extra visibility and better engage with the Instagram community.

 

What Is Instagram?
Instagram is a free mobile photo-sharing app with 80 million users and counting. It has seen many changes lately.

 

Instagram was acquired by Facebook in April 2012, launched a redesign on iOS that includes a new “Explore” tab and is rumored to be developing a web presence (so that users can see photos online, not just on the mobile app).

 

Social media management platform HootSuite also recently announced the addition of Instagram to its app directory. This gives HootSuite users access to almost all of Instagram’s features, which include searching, viewing and liking content, adding comments and sharing photos to other social platforms.

 

Clearly, Instagram is an up-and-coming photo-focused social platform not to be ignored. So what can your brand do with it?

 

Here are 10 creative ways your business can use Instagram.
