Yes, it's all pictures on your instagram, even on private accts, even pictures of your children...
Are you OK with Instagram using your photos in ads without your permission and without being compensated for it?
Come Jan. 16, you may not have a choice.
Instagram starts by explaining that some portions of its offerings may be supported by advertisers. That's typical. What's not so typical is this statement:
"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.
That translates to this: While Instagram still says you own your photos, the company owns the right to use your photos wherever it sees fit without informing you. To agree to the terms, all you need to do is log in to the site. And because the minimum age to use the site is 13, that means photos of teens as well as adults are subject to the new rules.
Currently, there is no way to opt out of this policy, unless you consider deleting your account as a solution.
Instagram, which is now owned by Facebook, made changes to its terms of service last week.Answer Question
