If you fear that Facebook will turn Instagram into a cash machine now that the Instagram creators are out the door, then you’ll want to make sure you’re in control of the way Instagram handles your data. That’s because Facebook now wants to get ahold of your location history from Instagram to deliver targeted ads inside Facebook.
The news comes from a TechCrunch source who revealed details about unreleased Instagram features in the past that were later added to the app.
Instagram is already prototyping the new privacy setting, which would let it share your location with Facebook. What’s disturbing is that your exact GPS coordinates will be collected by Instagram even when you’re not using the app.
