Instagram acknowledges user angst over its new TOS, promises to share more “soon”

Instagram, under a steady deluge of mostly contrived user furor over changes in its terms of service has taken to Twitter – the irony burns – to inform the world that it has heard the noise and will have more to share shortly.

Here’s the company’s terse message:

The service, popular among the tech savvy, has been hit by complaints after a piece of its TOS was misconstrued by many to imply that the company could sell their tinted-photographs. For more on what is really going on, I direct you to this article.

Instagram will continue to grow regardless of this temporary quasi-crisis among a piece of its userbase. Facebook itself has endured worse and chugged on forward. Instagram will weather the squall.

When the company does release a longer statement, we’ll bring you the news.
