Did you blindly agree and accept terms and conditions when signing up for Facebook, Snapchat, or other social platforms? You’re not alone. Yet, this colorful masterpiece by artist Dima Yarovinsky reveals the truth behind those platforms’ T&Cs.
In the wake of the Cambridge Analytica scandal, and Mark Zuckerberg’s testimony in front of the US Congress, many users were left asking themselves what they really had signed up for. The truth is that very few of us (and perhaps none of us) ever read terms and conditions.
Dima Yarovinsky printed the T&Cs of leading online platforms such as Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram or Tinder, on standard A4-size rolls. The artist’s creation was part of a project aiming to visualize how small and helpless users are against large corporations.
According to Dima, an average person reads at a rate of 200 words per minute. On the other hand, a “standard” terms and conditions agreement contains 11,972 words. Doing some quick math, that means it would take an average user about 60 minutes to read through a standard T&Cs agreement. Who does that?
Yarovinsky’s ‘I Agree’ project visualizes and compares the length of contractual obligations users have to agree to, in order to gain access to the world’s most common online platform. Surprisingly, Facebook doesn’t have the lengthiest T&Cs – Snapchat and Instagram do!
So, do you still ‘Agree’ now that you know?
