Basically Instagram users- famous and non-famous – set the internet a blaze threatening to close their pages once Instagram released their new policy a couple days ago that stated that they could sell account holders pics without consent. Now the owner of Instagram, Kevin Systrom is doing majordamage control and released a statement saying, “It is our mistake that this language is confusing. To be clear: it is not our intention to sell your photos.”  Now they are currently revising their policy. I’m still watching you Instagram -_-… Read owners full statement BELOW.“It is our mistake that this language is confusing. To be clear: it is not our intention to sell your photos.”

Whoops: When Instagram Stalking Goes Wrong

Systrom continues, “[The new terms of service] was interpreted by many that we were going to sell your photos to others without any compensation. This is not true.”

He adds, “Instagram users own their content and Instagram does not claim any ownership rights over your photos. Nothing about this has changed. We respect that there are creative artists and hobbyists alike that pour their heart into creating beautiful photos, and we respect that your photos are your photos. Period.”

“I always want you to feel comfortable sharing your photos on Instagram and we will always work hard to foster and respect our community and go out of our way to support its rights.”
