    Hey guys,

    I see a lot of pages with high count of followers posting photos of other pages in their niche and adding credit at the end. I'm wondering if they have an agreement of sort or is it just enough to credit original content creator at the end.

    I'm also wondering if, in general, when you find content (from where ever - internet, tumblr, etc) and post it - do you credit it? Or do you do it only for content from IG?

    There is no agreement on that. On Instagram everybody reposts and gives a credit. It is semi-legal, but works.

    If you like the guy from who you copy or if he's one and only, then you can give him credit.

    It's pretty much the "Creative Commons Act" for pictures - or am I wrong?

    I think so, the benefit of of it is getting credited on someones site that has similar audience to yours, you'll probably get some traffic out of it basically for free.

    I take giving credits as some sort of a shoutout, but a free one with both sides profiting from it anyway. The one you give credit for gets some additional traffic while you might get some as well but mostly build a positive image around your account. Real followers like that! :)
