Instagram Policy Changes Leading to User Discontent

"Dear Instagram, Good-bye old friend ... it isn't me it's you," Brian Simpson wrote on his Facebook wall as he shut down his Instagramaccount. It was the first thing he did when he read of Instagram's first big policy change since it was acquired by Facebook in April.

Instagram, the popular service for sharing and filtering photos shot on phones, has now released changes to its Terms of Use, which will go into effect on Jan. 16, 2013 for all users.

To get things up to date for the millions of people now using Instagram, we're bringing you new versions of our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service," Instagram wrote on its blog.
