Instagram and Facebook "Fails" Billion Users- "No Way Out"?
Instagram is now facing legal issues for last week's policy of service change.
The famous mobile photo-sharing network now owned by Facebook said on Monday, Dec.24, 2012 that it will remove language from its new terms of service and that user's photos could appear in ads. After the site hit a billion users, the company made several moves to address its self-admitted largest weakness and shifted to mobile devices.
According to a news report, the reaction from users for Instagram's suggestion was not just annoying, it was a deep sense of betrayal. "How dare Instagram do this?", the users refrained.
All social media companies easily confuse you in connecting friends with friendship to earn much of you, the report added.
"These services are publicly advertised as 'free,' but the free label masks costs to privacy, which include the responsibility of monitoring how these companies sell data, and even how they change policies over time,'' said Chris Hoofnagle, director of Information Privacy Programs at the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology.
A reporter said the company has "no way out."
Lately, according to The Sydney Morning Herald, "We believe this complaint is without merit and we will fight it vigorously," said Andrew Noyes Facebook representative in an email.
