    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.

    This is why I do not have apps that requires access to my files. I would denied them access and if the game (or app) refuse to work then I uninstall it (simple as that).

    The uproar is due to people not actually reading the TOS on facebook as these changes to instagram are basically just bringing it into line with them.

    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!

    You misunderstood my point, the failing to read the TOS happened with facebook since these new TOS for instagram are merely bringing it into line with facebook.

    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.

    Instagram released an apology, I guess that's because they had nothing more pressing to do,lol.

    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).

    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.
