Dear Instagramers, your photos are safe! If any of you have been following the impending war between Instagram and well, everyone that uses Instagram, then you know that Instagram was planning on changing its Terms of Service to monetize off its users photos. Apparently a lot of people didn’t like that.
After massive backlash against Instagram from users threatening to leave over the new Terms of Service, Instagram has said that it is going to revert back to its original Terms of Service, so all of your photos are still safe. The following was written by Kevin Systrom, the Co-Founder of Instagram,
This is great news for everyone. I know a ton of people and have a lot of friends that were planning on leaving Instagram over this whole debacle, so Instagram made a very wise decision by not going forward and angering every user they have more than they already have. We can now go back to taking photos of our lunch and sunsets.
Are you all as relieved as I am over this news? Were you planning on leaving if they had gone forward with these new Terms? Comment down below and let us now.
