It is believed that users began to worry after Instagram caused outrage because of its policy change in 2012 stating that it could sell posted photos to anyone. Though, Snapchat’s policy change did not cause quite that much stir as that of Instagram, user reaction show that the companies need to invest more time in explaining what policy changes mean to their users.
However, to be safe on our side, it is better to ensure and check if that information has to be shared on a social network. Many platforms have been hacked and users have been exposed. So let’s be safe than sorry.
