Channel 13 News Instagram Privacy Policy Update August 20, 2019

Share this on your Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat or Facebook to make everyone aware that this is a hoax that has happened in the past (July 2016).

Some of the celebrities to share this “privacy policy rule change” include musicians Pink and Usher, actresses Eva Longoria and  Zoe Saldana, actor Rob Lowe and movie producer Judd Apatow.

Please email us  jesse@wojdylosocialmedia.com where you first saw the Channel 13 news Instagram privacy policy change? Which user posted it? Did someone send you a DM so you could copy and paste. Here is what it looks like:

The posts that are now being shared around by celebrities read:

Don’t forget tomorrow starts the new Instagram rule where they can use your photos. Don’t forget Deadline today!!! It can be used in court cases in litigation against you. Everything you’ve ever posted becomes public from today. Even messages that have been deleted or the photos not allowed. Its costs nothing for a simple copy and paste, better safe than sorry. Channel 13 News talked about the change in Instagram’s privacy policy. I do not give Instagram or any entities associated with Instagram permission to use my pictures, information, messages or posts, both past and future. With this statement, I give notice to Instagram  it is strictly forbidden to disclose, copy, distribute, or take any other action against me based on this profile and/or its contents. The content of this profile is private and confidential information. The violation of this privacy can be punished by law (UCC 1-308 -1 1 308-103 and Rome Statute. NOTE: Instagram is now a public entity. All members must post a note like this. If you prefer, you can copy and paste this version. If you do not publish a statement at least once it will be tacitly allowing the use of your photos, as well as the information contained in the profile status updates. Instagram does not have my permission to share photos or messages.

So, do you think this is real?

Obviously, just from the wording alone, we know this is fake and a hoax. While there are some celebrities sharing it, Instagram is not going to recognize this as a legal document if they use your pictures. Note that years ago users agreed to let Instagram use their pictures if they were on a public account. If you have a private account, you do not have to worry about your pictures, private DMs or messages being used.

Another thing that gives it away, is that the logo is an old one. As seen in the more recent logo, it’s in the middle. And in the image, the word “Instagram” is close to the camera, and the account doesn’t have the check, so it’s obvious it’s an old image

If you’re a public account can they still use private messages?

MILLENNIALS! The government controls the educational system to brainwash ( suppress ) the human mind. To hide us from our TRUE abilities, in other words to keep society dumb. In order to keep control of the population. Everyone’s in their phones, laptop, tablet it’s easy to spread fake news. And have millennials believe anything and share the post.

Explanation is that they determined its a hoax from the fact that it’s not a legit document as well as the fact that Facebook had bought Instagram and had adapted Instagram policies similar to Facebook.

If you google Instagram Policy the Instagram terms and policy popup as well as a specific paragraph noting they use your photos, collect data etc….

It’s nothing new.

So I guess yes it’s real, but it’s only being spread around now because these celebrities learned something new (:

What if you had a public account and changed it to private? Will the conversations and the pictures be able to share to the court and used against you?

If you’re worried you’re going to get caught cheating or breaking the law because of pictures and DM’s exposing your “dirt” and it be used against you in court ..perhaps you need to stay off the internet and rethink your life choices ..just a thought…
