    Without any payment or remuneration to them.

    In a policy which comes into effect from 16th Jan ( if you do not delete your account before that ), Instagram could sell/share/promote/use your uploaded image in a matter suitable to them, and generate revenue for themselves.

    This is a shot-in-the-face-but-am-not-satisfied-so-give-me-that-gun-again step. Gee whiz!

    Thankfully, I never used Instagram, and now am glad I dint!

    Yea .. 95% of their content is too 'artistically' modified to be of any real use.

    I am however curious is the amount of EXIF + Meta data that Instagram is able to pick up from each photo.. that could prove much more valuable.

    Facebook has to show something for the cool BILLION they spent on nixing Instagram ..
