Instagrammers: All Your Pics Are Belong To Us

Facebook has updated the Instagram Terms of Service to say…

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.

In other words…

    "You have no chance to survive make your time" could be the new FB tag line.

  2. I am in the middle of putting together a presentation with regards to social media for a business guess I will be leaving Instagram off of the list.

  3. Anything out there in cyber space,including pictures posted by your friends, etc. are fair game now and there is no such thing as privacy anymore. We can't control what others do with our pictures.

  4. The news that broke out about Instagram really got the people riled up. I think they already retracted this though.
