Instagram, which now has in excess of 100 million users worldwide, can also share information about you with Facebook and other affilates and advertisers.
The site was acquired by Facebook in April this year for £616m. Carolyn Everson, Facebook's vice-president of global marketing solutions, was quoted as saying earlier this month: "Eventually we'll figure out a way to monetise Instagram." The site had said that its objective is to make it easier to work with Facebook. In a statement, it said "This means we can do things like fight spam more effectively, detect system and reliability problems more quickly, and build better features for everyone by understanding how Instagram is used," it said in a statement.
