Time to dump Instagram? New Terms of Service?
"To help us to 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, whithout any compensation to you."
When/if Facebook buys whatsapp I expect to see the same type of Terms of Service.
Thank god for BB10 and BBM and ____.

You would have to dump Facebook too if you haven't already.

im not sure its different than before. ANYTHING you share via facebook, twitter or instagram can be used by someone else. That is just the way the internet is.~Matt

The UPROAR was because instagram tried to make a grab for content via a NEW Terms of Service,lol. I mean really think about it, even National Geographic CLOSED their instagram account because of it. PINK has 12 million followers on twitter and called for a boycott of instagram , along with many other celebs, because of the NEW TOS. This whole bondoogle has nothing to do with people not reading the TOS. People obviously read the TOS, that's why instagram has NOW back tracked!

Skeevecr, Has a point. Alot of people are over-reacting and not actually reading the TOS fully and not doing there homework, that and It`s written poorly. I believe the Uproar is very pre-mature. If you really want to know what TOS is trying to explain I explain it to you, else read a blog post from someone with insight.

So it looks like what they really wanted to say in the ToS was that they are going to start pushing ads into the timeline and are going to make them look just like the photos your friends post (without any identifier to let you know it is an ad).RuneCryption - Unique memory game for PlayBook & BB10.

Or promote other people accounts kind like how Facebook promote brands or suggest friends you may know. Instagram will do the same expect brands like `Nike` could pay more to have the profile advertised a bit more.
This is technically advertisement without your consent.
