It's the 'monkeys writing Shakespeare' approach, millions of users uploading photos, one might be valuable. It doesn't need to be high quality, imagine a celebrity/politician caught done something embarrassing.

Ruijie, what you say is true HOWEVER: if that was entirely the case, then Instagram would never have wanted to monetize your photos by selling them off to advertisers without your permission/consent/revenue-share agreement in the first place, no?
