A section in the new TOS entitled “Rights” mentions, Instagram can use your photographs and identity in advertisements. “To help us deliver interesting paid or sponsored content or promotions, you agree that a business or other entity may pay us to display your username, likeness, photos (along with any associated metadata), and/or actions you take, in connection with paid or sponsored content or promotions, without any compensation to you,” the new TOS says.
It of course has attracted various reactions. The New York Times tries to explain clearly what the Instragram’s new TOS means to its readers.
“If the new terms are tough for you to swallow, there is a way to quickly remove yourself from the many-filtered ways of Instagram,” Wired.com writes in a post. It also shows you how to take your photos out of Instagram and delete your account.
Meanwhile, Gizmodo conveys a different opinion by posting “Stop Whining About Your Personal Data on Instagram You Little Whiny Baby.”
