Instagram has had everyone up in arms this week after revealing a new Terms of Service policy that seems to give the company the rights to sell user photos to outside sources, without permission from, or compensation to, the user!
Although Instagram claims that this is a widespread misinterpetation of their T.O.S, they have yet to release a revised version of their service terms, and people all over are threatening to quit the site if a new T.O.S is not produced quickly.
One such person is Kim Kardashian! A source close to Kardashian revealed that if Kimmie doesn’t see a revised T.O.S soon, she’s shutting her Instagram account down – and taking all of her followers with her!
This could be a problem as Kardashian is to Instagram what Rihanna is to Facebook. The reality star is the most followed person on Instagram, with 5,726,343 followers. This is over 1 million more followers than the second most followed person (Justin Beiber at 4,366,729) and close to 4 million more followers than the President ( at 1,834,079)!
To add to that, Kim’s family members, Khloe, Kylie, Kendall and Rob are all in the Top 10 most followed on the site; and if Kim goes, it’s possible that they’ll go too!
Get it together Instagram!
As we mentioned earlier though, celebrities aren’t the only ones reacting to this new policy. What do YOU think of Instagram’s new, “mis-interpreted,” T.O.S? Have you considered shutting down your Instagram account as well? Let us know below!
