To Instagram or not to Instagram, that is the question. Last week, the Instagram world trembreld when they announced a series of new rules where they basically told you, that they could sell your photos to advertirsers without noticing you about it and without giving you anything back. Oh well, that's nice, many users thought, and decided to delete their accounts if those new terms of service were to be applied and, most importantly, celeb instagramers expressed the same and that's when things change.

Because now it's all a misunderstanding and they have released an update of those new terms of service and they were never, ever, going to sell our photos:

"Instagram has no intention of selling your photos, and we never did. We don't own your photos – – you do."

Yeah, right we all got it wrong. This is what happens when social networks get big and, understandably, they want to make a profit out of it but Instagram is not Facebook, and for good and bad reasons: Facebook can own all the stuff you post there and still noone is gonna quit but Instagram here has done a douchey move, it was a cool social network, one that not everybody was able to have, and it had some sort of elitist status, but it has lost big points for that.

Don't get me wrong, i love Instagram and i'm gonna continue there, and it's not like they were going to sell my photos when there are others out there that have 123450923 likes, but i didn't like the uncertainty of them possibly selling ma pretty pics:
