Probably fairly boilerplate

Probably fairly boilerplate language for apps and web sites where user generated content defines the service. There are so many pitfalls to accepting user content, especially because they have no idea if the uploads are defamatory, illegal or represent some other kind of financial or legal threat to their company.

Fortunately, no one has ever held a gun to your head to use either Instagram or Facebook. Plenty of fools are 100% willing to abandon all privacy and common sense when they voluntarily join.
