Dana & Jayson - The Instagram Privacy HOAX

Wednesday, August 21st

​If you've been combing the social media landscape in the last 24 hours, you've probably already seen it, or worse yet, reposted it yourself. A paragraph of legal-sounding text has been sweeping the timeline of Instagram, purporting to protect the user who posts it from losing the legal rights to their content to the social media company, and digitally declaring themselves free of new privacy settings. The only problem is, the whole thing is obviously bogus. While Dana felt compassion for those mostly middle-aged adults copying and pasting what seemed to be an obvious fraud, Jayson and Producer Jack weren't letting the internet masses off the hook so easy.
