Instagram is Using All of Your Information for Advertising

They will use your photos against you.

Targeted online advertising just got more unsettling. The Wall Street Journal has reported that Instagram is becoming a place for some seriously disconcerting market research. Digital marketing companies, like Ditto Lab Inc., are using Instagram images to identify everything from clothing labels, logos and locations to current moods, in order to individualise advertising to each user.

You may have thought Facebook's privacy policy was questionable, but Instagram is just as bad–if not worse. Instagram’s privacy agreement never stipulates that your images can't be shared with a third party so all information that can be gathered from your posts, will be, including that post from the one time your friend stole your Instagram and took incriminating photos of you. Should make for some interesting targeted advertising.
