Kim Kardashian threatens to quit Instagram over new policies

New York, Dec. 21 (ANI): Kim Kardashian is reportedly so angry over the photo-sharing site Instagram's new terms of service, that she is considering leaving it.

The 32-year-old reality star has told her friends that she is thinking about shutting down her Instagram account and going to a rival photo-posting company and taking all of her followers with her, TMZ.com reported.

Kardashian has the highest number of followers than any Instagram user at 5,726,343, way past Justin Bieber (4,366,729) and President Barack Obama (1,834,079).

Plus, if she goes, her family members could follow and Khloe, Kylie, Kendall and Rob are also in the Top 10 most followed on the site.

Instagram has been under serious fire this week, after the company announced its new terms of service policy which seemed to give the company power to sell user's photos to outside companies, without having to compensate the user.

The company has said that the widespread interpretation of the policy was simply not true, as they're not selling user photos and apologized for the "confusing" language.

The company has said that it's revising the wording and will release a new TOS in the near future.

According to a source, Kardashian is planning on waiting to see the revised terms of service, before she makes her final decision but unless she sees some radical changes, she's getting out of the site. (ANI)
