Did you read Instagram’s Terms and Conditions carefully before signing up? Be honest. If you didn’t do it, I won’t judge. The sentences are so complicated, that I’m not sure any of us read them with full attention and understanding.
Now, imagine children who use Instagram. More than a half of teenagers and almost a half of 8 to 11-year-olds in Great Britain are active on this social network. Did they read the Terms and Conditions? I highly doubt it. And the report by the UK Children’s Commissioner confirms my doubts. You can’t blame the children though, because they don’t understand these complex sentences and legal discourse.
Because of this, a lawyer Jenny Afia did us all a favor and rewrote Instagram’s Terms and Conditions so that the kids can understand them. And even us grown-ups will find it helpful.
