After the immense public backlash surrounding Instagram’s overhauled ToS — especially with regards to using your content for advertising — the company has reverted back to its original legal language. And, as if to assuage the angry crowd, the app has pushed out a new update with the new filter “Mayfair” — but even that has had problems.
The reverted terms of service should please most users who were worried about Instagram selling their work and keeping the profits (though there were some who thought the new ToS were better than the old one). They’ll keep it this way until they get a plan for how to advertise solidified.
In a move that feels a little like Instagram is trying to distract us, the company also rolled out a minor update with the new filter “Mayfair”, better language support, sharing to Facebook, and the ability to select files from any folder.
Unfortunately, this rollout has caused some further issues. Some users are seeing their private photos marked as public — though thankfully, they are actually set to private, it’s just an issue with how the setting is displayed.
