“Don’t forget tomorrow starts the new Instagram rule where they can use your photos. Don’t forget Deadline today!!! It can be used in court cases in litigation against you. Everything you’ve ever posted becomes public from today Even messages that have been deleted or the photos not allowed.”
The recent Instagram policy change notice caused many people to share the note thinking they are denying the social network access of their posts.
While many people shared the notice including several celebrities, others questioned the validity of the Instagram policy notice.
Trevor Noah, the host of The Daily Show, took the fake Instagram policy change notice and turned it into a joke. He posted a parody of the fake privacy note to his Instagram account.
