The New York Times reports on Instagram’s reversal of proposed changes to its privacy policy announced earlier this week. According to a blog post released Thursday night by Instagram Co-Founder Kevin Systrom, the company plans to revert to its previous terms of service. Systrom said, “Going forward, rather than obtain permission from you to introduce possible advertising products we have not yet developed, we are going to take the time to complete our plans, and then come back to our users and explain how we would like for our advertising business to work.” Systrom added, “I want to be really clear: Instagram has no intention of selling your photos, and we never did. We don’t own your photos--you do.” (Registration may be required to access this story.)
