The terms and conditions of most social media sites stipulate that the users reserve the right to determine who has access to the content they upload. Therefore the extent of access depends on the privacy settings and the services that the user installs.
However, with the social media era came the screenshot functionality that allows one to take an image of the display on the phone or its pre-existing print screen. The functionality allows users of the social media platform to obtain the image uploaded by another user without permission. Which brings the question, are we undermining the creative works that the law protects by downplaying the screenshot copyright infringement on social media?
