I found this http://news.cnet.com/8301-13578_3-5...ays-it-now-has-the-right-to-sell-your-photos/
lol like facebook said that they can change their privacy as they wished
Every social network have that in their policy, but mostly they do not do that because they have no use of your photos lol, but it did happen in past that people saw them self on a viagra ad without their acknowledge, and pictures were from Google+.
Watch out for their sneaky TOS when signing up..
Google+ I believe does not have the same policy as the new IG one. This is legal stealing in my opinion. They use lawyers to write up documents to allow people to give up their rights so they can use it for money. Only big corporations get away with this type of stuff because they can bury people in legal fees.
They could easily turn amateur/professional photos into a profit machine by selling stock photos. The work of collecting them is already done and they don't even have to pay anyone for it.
actually instagram has fiercely denied this story this morning
Not surprising really as both Facebook and Instagram have never understood the art of communicating with the media and the general public as in users...
They actually DID initially have this in the new TOS, but after thousands of users deleted their accounts they had their legal team redact the language that spoke about selling photos and re-released the TOS. They realized the exodus was going to make a pretty big dent within a few hours.
"When something is free, it means you are the product!"
Exactly this - what do you people expect?
Why would any normal person use Instagram in the first place?
Most people use instagram so they can take pretty pictures.....They see Rihanna posting up cool sepia toned pics so they sign up....Post anything on the net and you have given it away forever
