    So I assume they added any necessary stuff to the TOS to allow this.

    Never read it but I assume it already was. Pretty much every platform has a clause that says something along the lines of “we own all the content you submit to our service”.

      Actually it’s usually more “you own the content but by posting it grant is an irrevocable right for us and our partners to use it”

      Basically allows them use without the responsibility for ownership of inappropriate content

        Exactly. Instagram doesn’t claim ownership to any of your content, but Instagram’s terms of use state that the user grants Instagram a non-exclusive, fully paid, and royalty-free, transferable, sub-licensable, worldwide license to use their content. Additionally, they can make money off your content without ever paying you a cut. Honestly, it’s pretty boiler plate at this point. No one should expect anything else from corporations.
