NEW YORK, NY- One day after Instagram said it would sell users' photos to advertisers, the company backtracked. According to CNN Money, Instagram won't sell your pictures after all after massive user backlash.
Basically they want to do something similar to Facebook's "sponsored stories" where if a business wanted to promote its Instagram account, and you "follow" the business, the site might use your profile photo in a message telling your friends about your endorsement.
