'If you’re seeing a meme claiming Instagram is changing its rules tomorrow, it’s not true,' Adam Mosseri, head of Instagram, wrote on Twitter.Aug. 21, 2019, 2:47 PM UTC By Kalhan Rosenblatt A years-old hoax is making the rounds on Instagram again, claiming the social media company is about to change its rules in order to access users' photos. Users of the Facebook-owned social network, including celebrities and politicians, have fallen victim to the hoax, which says that images uploaded to Instagram"can be used in court cases in litigation against you." "Everything you've ever posted becomes public from today," the hoax message says,"even messages that have been deleted or the photos not allowed." The message ends,"Instagram DOES NOT HAVE MY PERMISSION TO SHARE PHOTOS OR MESSAGES." Instagram users have been uploading a screenshot of the message to their accounts as a"warning" to fellow users. The message mentions a"Channel 13 News," which is not an actual news outlet, and is riddled with grammatical and punctuation errors. Those sharing the fake message included Secretary of Energy Rick Perry, the actors Julianne Moore, Julia Roberts and Rob Lowe, rapper Waka Flocka Flame and singer Usher. By Wednesday morning, many of those who had posted the hoax had deleted the image. the guy who handles US nukes got took by an aol-era instagram chainmeme Read more: NBC News

LoL Facebook listens in on your calls, do you think they care about your dumb disclaimer meme In a timeline long enough, all meme-hoaxes return Instagram is a cesspool. Unfortunately the Hoax Network, , is still on the air. Common sense is not so common anymore.
Please talk about the Amazon burning, not an Instagram hoax Not Again Wait. I'm already on Twitter. Why would I possibly need Instagram? You would think people would use common sense. I kept seeing the same post over and over. 🤦♀️

Well, he is dumb AF. What an incompetent idiot. The man who wanted to do away with the Energy Dept. (if he could only remember what it's called) is in charge. If you don't understand the Net you should not be in charge, period. FeelTheFern07
