One of my mates posted this to FB and I found it interesting, I guess it was inevitable giving FB bought IG a while back, but some interesting new terms...

From Huff Post - http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/17/instagrams-terms-of-service_n_2317402.html?utm_hp_ref=tw

Your data will be used for ads. Ads are coming to Instagram. This isn't a surprise. However, the new terms outline the fact the ads will use your data, photos and even the metadata (read: geo-location data), for targeting purposes. As The Social Times says, "Get ready for some ads starring your friends and you." In fact, your data may be used as a way to endorse sponsored content or promotions.
Ads may not be marked clearly. You may not even know that ads are ads. This one seems curious since Facebook's sponsored content is typically clearly marked as such
Instagram can use your photos. You own the content you post, but Instagram can use any of it without any issues.

EFF have a summary: https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2012/12/instagrams-new-terms-service-sell-your-photos.

They also note at the end:
Update: Instagram has put out a statement on their blog saying that they plan to reconsider these changes, and will be modifying the language in the Terms. Instagram also explained that they feel that the Terms were misinterpreted and they did not intend to sell photos. Whatever their intention, the key is the language of the agreement. We look forward to reviewing the revised Terms.
You have until the 16th of January to exit Instagram before this T&C change takes effect.

But if they all leave Instagram, where will everyone go to share pictures of their food with one another?

Instagram is where all the cool kids put sparkle filters, flower borders and dreamy haze on their ugly faces to appear more attractive and cool. I delete people from facebook who do that s***.

Didn't facebook actually have this also; but they gave an option to disable it in privacy settings or something?

Instagram will get a similar option surely

Little Miss Muffett,
sat on her tuffett,
instagramming her curds and whey...
Along came a spider,
and sat down beside her,
To Facebook she ran and complained.
