Instagram is sharing your data with Facebook according to the New Privacy Policy

17 December, 2012 Social Networks


You may recall that Facebook purchased Instagram App for $1 Billion. However, Facebook did promise to keep Instagram as a separate entity and not fold it into Facebook proper, but that doesn't mean that there won't be some data sharing as time goes on. And, that time is coming pretty soon as Instagram has shown off its new privacy policy with does include sharing data with Facebook.

The change in the Instagram privacy policy comes after Facebook had made similar changes to allow for data-sharing between itself and Instagram. With the changes to Instagram's policy, Instagram will be able to "share user content and your information," including cookies, location data, device identifiers, and other information with Facebook-owned companies.


However, Instagram says on its Offiical blog that "nothing has changed about your photos' ownership or who can see them," which is great to hear given that Facebook's copyright claims on photos is overly broad.
