Internet & Networking "Everyone from CNET to the BBC is freaking out today about Instagram's new terms of service. The new terms, they claim, allow Instagram to sell user's images. Users are understandably upset. Wired published a tutorial on how to download all of your Instagram photos and delete your account. But long-time Instagram users should think twice before pulling the trigger. The truth is that Instagram has always claimed full rights to your images, but has just re-worded their terms of service to make their intentions clearer." People should stop obsessing over individual service's privacy terms. There's a very simple rule on the internet that everyone ought to be aware of: the moment you put something on the web, it's no longer your property. Deal with it. Coincidentally: nobody cares about your stupid Instagram photos.

Indeed. It's easy to sit on the outside and call these people suckers, but it's still an epic betrayal of trust.

I'm not sure the OPs comparison is fair either, one is a corporate entity and most upload services are dubious when it comes to ownership of uploaded content. Where as the other is a more about the emotions and trust between partners.

But what we learn from OSNews is that we shouldn't expect better of people and we should certainly not complain about it.
