Instagram Can Now Sell Your Photos Without You Knowing
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — After you snap that next pic, you might think twice before uploading it to Instagram. The popular photo app announced a new policy allowing them to sell your photographs, without paying or telling you, CNET reported.
The only way to opt out of the new policy is to delete your account prior to Jan. 16, when it goes into effect. After that, users don’t have a choice.
Under the new policy, Instagram could use your photos for anything — including advertising — and not having you see a dime. Essentially, it can, and probably will, become the world’s largest stock photo archive.
The about-face comes just three months after the app was gobbled up by Facebook.
