Instagram’s Rights to Your Content
Restrictions on Usernames
Instagram has specified in its new Terms update that your Instagram username, or “handle”, may not be the same as a domain name or URL. So for example, if your Instagram handle ends with .com, Instagram may flag your account or take it down. Users who have these types of handles should take care to change them as soon as possible.
Your Likes May Not Be Private
So What Does All of This Mean?
After reading through all of this, you may still not be clear on what Instagram’s updated policies mean. Essentially, it means that your user experience won’t change in a huge way. Yes, Instagram will have a license to use your content- however, for most of us, that won’t make a difference. Even though Instagram has a license to use your content, the probability of them acting on it is very small.
