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.

Looks like Instagram is doing outright and openly what most websites do behind the scenes deceptively as they collect your personal information without your permission and use it to their benefit without respect for your privacy.
I don't blame people for quitting on Instagram, besides....Tiffani is a sweetie and gorgeous so she's right :D

I already signed up for PicYou. That's going to be the new Instagram. Grab your usernames while they are still available. LOL

The only thing they're mad about is that they wouldn't get money. I doubt they care about anything else.
