The terms and conditions for using Social Media are very long and complicated. 99% of adults simply skim through them and accept them, as they are written in complicated legal language that many people don't fully understand.
Did you know that by using Instagram you are granting them
permission to "keep, use and share your personal information
with companies connected with lnstagram. This information
includes your name, email address, school, where you live,
pictures, phone number, your likes and dislikes, where you go,
who your friends are, how often you use lnstagram, and any other
personal information we find such as your birthday or who you are
chatting with, including in private messages (DMs)."
