Instagram Lovers, You are Forewarned

By Ashley Caputo January 18, 2013

When one of our favorite social media platforms changes its rules and regulations, it creates uneasiness among the community.

Last December, Instagram issued a change in its privacy policy and terms of service because of increased notoriety in the social media world. The new regulations informed users that any photos uploaded onto Instagram can be used for its own financial gains for commercial purposes.

Over the past year Instagram has become popular all over the world and according to Instagram, users post about 40 million photos per day, get 8,500 "likes" per second and receive 1,000 comments per second.

Just like any social media outlet that begins make a name in the industry, Instagram had to alter its terms of services in order to be able to profit.

Although many people believe that its daily user’s activity during the month Instagram released its privacy changes, Instagram found the opposite. According to an analysis done by AllThingsDigital, Instagram received a growth, not decline.

This type of change in privacy and technicalities brings to light how social media companies are adjusting to the recent explosion in its market. Instagram, who wouldn’t be able to enforce such terms of services a few years ago, are able to do so now because of how social media is evolving.

Users are also evolving too. Every person who uses Instagram are compliant with the new polices they have created, despite how unjust they may seem. Or if they aren’t aware of the new policy, users should begin to pay closer attention to the social media platforms they are using.
