Advertisement Biz Instagram & Criticism and lawsuits Insta announced a change to its terms of use that caused a widespread outcry from its user base. The controversial clause stated: "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". There was no apparent option to opt out of the changed terms of use. The move garnered severe criticism from privacy advocates as well as consumers. After one day, Instagram apologized saying that it would remove the controversial language from its terms of use. Kevin Systrom, a co founder of Instagram, responded to the controversy, stating, Our intention in updating the terms was to communicate that we like to experiment with innovative advertising that feels appropriate on Instagram. Instead it was interpreted by many that we were going to sell your photos to others without any compensation. This is not true and it is our mistake that this language is confusing. To be clear: it is not our intention to sell your photos. We are working on updated language in the terms to make sure this is clear Some terms of service are worded to allow unilateral amendment, where one party can change the agreement at any time without the use, with one such clause, was unenforceable.
