Did you spend 86 minutes combing through the terms and conditions when you signed up to Instagram? How about Twitter? Or Facebook?
The jargon-filled user agreements of your favourite social media apps are back in the spotlight thanks to a new project by Israel-based designer Dima Yarovinsky, I Agree.
After printing the terms and conditions for services including Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram and Tinder on colourful A4 scrolls, the UX designer let the paper cascade down the wall and across the floor. From left to right, you can see the user agreements for WhatsApp (green), Google (grey), Tinder (pink), Twitter (light blue), Facebook (dark blue), Snapchat (yellow) and Instagram (dark pink). At the base of each scroll is the number of words in each contract and the average reading time.
“My main goal was to emphasize how small, helpless and harmful we are against these giant corporations,” said Yarovinsky, who created the project as part of his infographics course at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design.
I Agree is currently on disaplay at Aalto University in Finland as part of the institution's ongoing Visualizing Knowledge conference.
