Instagram Reminds Users of Terms of Service Change

Instagram_Logo_LargeRemember the Instagram debacle?

While the company may have listened to users’ outrage (and there was a lot of that.. ) they’ve still made changes to their terms of service, although the changes are much less drastic than the originally planned ones.

In an email sent to users of the service today the company underlines this:

Our community has grown by many millions of people since we wrote our original Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. As we announced in December, we have updated our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. These policies also now take into account the feedback we received from the Instagram Community. We’re emailing you to remind you that, as we announced last month, these updated policies will be in effect as of January 19th, 2013.
You can read our blog post that highlights some of the key updates. And remember, these updates don’t change the fact that you own your photos that you post on Instagram, and our privacy controls work just as they did before.
Thank you,
The Instagram Team


They’ve outlined the changes and the feedback here and here.

Of course if you want to export your existing photos from Instagram there are plenty of plugins for popular CMS such as WordPress that can help you to do this.
