    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.
