Ring states that it seeks permission from the user before using their content in this manner. However, these discoveries did lead to concerns over the use of such footage in material deemed to effectively be advertising, as well as concerns over other possible uses of the footage such as for training facial recognition due to the wide copyright license that users must grant to in order to use Neighbors an irrevocable, unlimited, and royalty-free license to use shared content "for any purpose and in any media formats in any media channels without compensation to you" , and Ring's partnerships with local law enforcement agencies.

Finger rings have been found in tombs in Ur dating back to circa BC. Archaic Greek rings were to some extent influenced by Egyptian rings, although they tended to be less substantial and were not generally used as working signet rings.
The classical period showed a shift away from bronze to a wider adoption of silver and gold. The most typical design of the period involved a lozenge bezel mounting an intaglio device.
During the early and middle imperial era first two centuries AD , a typical Roman ring consisted of a thick hoop that tapered directly into a slightly wider bezel. During this period, it was fashionable for multiple rings to be worn on each hand and each finger.
Rings during this period were mostly made from copper-based alloys, silver or gold. Each finger had a symbolic association or meaning most of which were lost in antiquity and varied with culture for the placement of a ring, significant to observers. The fourth digit or ring finger of the left hand has become the customary place to wear betrothal, engagement and wedding rings in much of the world, though in certain countries the right hand finger is used.
The use of the fourth finger of the left hand the 'ring finger' is associated with an old belief that the left hand's ring finger is connected by a vein directly to the heart: the vena amoris , or vein of love.
This idea was in vogue in the 16th and 17th century England, when Henry Swinburne referred to it in his book about marriage. Occasionally rings have been re-purposed to hang from bracelets or necklaces. The signet ring is traditionally worn on the left pinky or little finger.
Amulet rings, meaningful for various purposes from protection pentacle rings to augmenting personal attributes wisdom, confidence, social status etc. Although it has been thought that amulet rings worn on specific fingers for specific purposes enhanced their powers, most people simply wear them on any finger on which they fit.
Thumb rings were originally worn to protect the thumb from injuries caused by the launching of arrows and are a sign of an archer.
While the ISO standard defines ring size in terms of the inner circumference measured in millimeters , various countries still use traditional sizing systems. Sizing beads, which functionally reduce the ring size, are small metal beads added to the inner surface of a ring to hold it in place against the finger; they have the advantage of being easily added or removed.
After several thousand years of ring manufacture, the total number of styles produced is vast. Even cataloging the rings of a single civilization, such as the Romans, presents a major challenge. As a result, the following list should be considered to be very limited.
Wearing a ring can in some cases be a safety concern, when the ring is made of a material stronger than the hand, fully encircles the digit, and catches onto an immovable object. This can result in serious injury degloving , amputation , or Ring avulsion. If a ring catches on rotating machinery, or the ring of a falling person catches on a stationary object, the wearer may suffer injury. For these reasons, some workplaces require employees to remove their rings temporarily while performing certain tasks or when in certain areas of a workplace.
Despite the ring's symbolic appeal as a solid band around the finger, modern jewelers are sometimes known to modify rings such that, at worst, they only tear the flesh of the wearer's finger in cases like those above-mentioned.
