Submission + - Updated terms let Instagram use your name, photos and metadata in ads (techradar.com)

An anonymous reader writes:

Starting Jan. 16, 2013, Instagram is implementing new terms of service all users must agree to in order to use the photo sharing site's offerings. Between all the legal jargon, rules and warnings, Instagram slipped in a new "right," one that isn't in its current terms and an addition aimed at earning the social service some moolah. "To help us deliver interesting paid or sponsored content or promotions, you agree that a business or other entity may pay us to display your username, likeness, photos (along with any associated metadata) and/or actions you take, in connection with paid or sponsored content or promotions, without any compensation to you." Translated, Instagram can use Insta-info you've publicly posted to generate ads on the site or on Facebook (owner of Instagram) to make money while you won't see a cent.
