I'm DROPPING Instagram

Over 'Ridiculous' New Terms

The Instagram mutiny is underway ... with a bunch of celebs already vowing to NEVER use the photo-sharing service again after the company announced a HUGE change in policy. 

Instagram has been under fire for updating their terms of use ... which says users "agree that a business or other entity may pay us to display your username, likeness, photos (along with any associated metadata), and/or actions you take, in connection with paid or sponsored content or promotions, without any compensation to you."

The statement pissed off tons of users -- famous and non-famous -- including Kate Walsh and Tiffani Thiessen .. who tweeted, "Really sad to have to end my luv 4 @instagram. Will be deleting my account due 2 their ridiculous new terms."

And there's more ... "Dancing with the Stars" pro Cheryl Burke is also abandoning ship ... tweeting, "Can't believe Instagrams new policy! They r allowed 2 use ALL of ur images in advertising. Will be erasing my account shortly."

FYI -- The new terms of use do not go into effect until January 16.

I recently learned that TMZ.com, is owned by a subsidiary of the monstrous, monopolizing - soon to be defunct- Time Warner Inc.
AGAIN: How do I delete my account, IMMEDIATELY?

...lol... don't think for a sec that just by pressing the delete button everything you have entered - info, data, images, etc... magically disappears from their servers.

Doesn't Facebook already have this as part of there terms and conditions? This is not surprising then. As for 'celebs' boycotting, to me it seems that they just don't want to miss out on a payday.
