10 things you did not know you agreed to via Terms of Service on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn. 

 

Facebook: 

1. Facebook has permission to use your photos and videos for whatever it wants. 

2. You can’t use Facebook if you’re a convicted sex offender. 

3. You’re required to keep your contact information up to date. 

Twitter:

4. How you explore Twitter, and how you got there 

5. You’re not allowed to squat on a username. 

Instagram: 

6. You’re not allowed to post sexually suggestive content. 

7. You’re not supposed to send ideas to Instagram, but if the company actually reads them and likes them, it’ll use them. 

LinkedIn: 

8. You can’t add anyone you don’t actually know. 

9. Your profile can’t promote escort or prostitution services — even if they’re legal where you live. 

10. You’re not allowed to lie. 

 

Some of these seem like common sense but, unless you actually read the TOS, which you should but probably have not, you do not know what you have agreed to when using these sites. These types of things are not just limited to these sites.

 

Any other "odd" things you know of? 

 

My advice: Read the Terms of Service of any site you use.
