Facebook/Instagram mess continues: TOS changes aborted

http://j.mp/R81NRo  (New York Times)

   "In the aftermath of an uproar over changes to its privacy policy and
    terms-of-service update earlier this week, Instagram did an about-face
    late Thursday.  In a blog post, Kevin Systrom, Instagram's co-founder,
    said the company would revert to previous terms of service in effect
    since October 2010."

Egads.  This whole saga has been incredibly embarrassing for
Facebook/Instagram.  I'd sure like to know who the blazes vetted the
original terrible changes in the TOS!  And what does this *really*
mean going forward?
