Say it ain’t so, Instagram.

New Statesman reports that Instagram‘s new terms of service asserts the right to sell your photos to advertisers. Even so, I doubt this will keep many people, including myself, from using this surprisingly addictive app and social networking site.

I’m not sure we’ll be returning to flickr anytime soon. Or will we?

Also covering today’s collective Web freak-out is The Wall Street Journal, taking care to zero-in on the clause that’s got so many shutterbugs in a twitter.
