Instagram has said it will remove language from its new terms of service that would have allowed users' photos to be part of advertisements that would run within the photo sharing social network.
Kevin Systrom, the social network's co-founder, said Instagram doesn't currently have plans to run such ads, so it will remove that language from the terms of service that kick in Jan. 16.
"We do not have plans for anything like this and because of that we’re going to remove the language that raised the question," Systrom said in a blog.
Systrom said Instagram was listening to its users and would fix any mistakes on the social network's part. He said Instagram never intended to sell people's photos to others without compensating the photographers.
