Instagram launched Web profiles in the first true attempt from the photo-sharing service to provide users with a more complete version of user identity accessible through the Web. In essence, it’s most everything you know about your profile page from your Instagram mobile app, but available on the Web. This comes at no surprise since Facebook now owns Instagram.

A privacy notice that’s been virally spreading on Facebook, supposedly protecting one’s personal details and data from unauthorized copying, is fake.
