If you thought that Instagram was deaf to the public outcry that started on Monday with their proposed terms of service then you’d be wrong. Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom wrote another blog post tonight that explains:
Because of the feedback we have heard from you, we are reverting this advertising section to the original version that has been in effect since we launched the service in October 2010.
… You also had deep concerns about whether under our new terms, Instagram had any plans to sell your content. I want to be really clear: Instagram has no intention of selling your photos, and we never did. We don’t own your photos – you do.
The photo sharing service will revert to the previous terms of service in effect since October 2010. You can read the UPDATED TERMS on the company’s website.
