Today, I sat down with our own Josh Constine to discuss all of the ruckus having to do with the recent privacy policy and terms of service changes for Instagram and Facebook, which caused a bit of an uproar. There was so much confusion that Instagram’s co-founder, Kevin Systrom, had to write a blog post to dispel some of the rumors and assure us that Facebook has its users’ best interests in mind.

Here’s what we know now: Instagram was never going to “sell” your photos, but it may sell access to your data in the future, making it available to be displayed as an advertisement on Instagram or Facebook.

We all know that it’s difficult, if not impossible, to make our way through entire legal documents and decipher what it all means for us as users, so companies should really step up and try to do a better job.
