A lawyer rewrote Instagram’s terms of use ‘in plain English’ so kids would know their privacy rights

A lawyer rewrote Instagram’s terms of use ‘in plain English’ so kids would know their privacy rights | Social Media: Don't Hate the Hashtag | Scoop.it

Amy B. Wang writes: "It’s no secret that teenagers love social media.

 

Members of “Generation Z” can spend up to nine hours a day sharing photos on Instagram, consuming “content” on YouTube and talking to friends on Snapchat. (Just don’t ask them to get excited about Facebook.)

 

But how much do these teens understand what they’ve agreed to give up when they start an account with those sites?

 

Probably very little, according to a report released last week — and dense terms and conditions that are “impenetrable and largely ignored” are partly to blame."
