    Snapchat just reserved the rights to store and use all selfies taken with the device

    "Not only that, but the privacy policy also states that by sharing your content on the service, you are also granting Snapchat permission to use your name, likeness and voice anywhere in the world, with no restrictions, on all media and distribution channels, forever.
    This means that the photos people take, thinking they are temporary and private, could appear on Snapchat's promotional material, on its website or even its social media accounts."

    Iirc this is a similar situation with companies like face book and we all know (surely) about google's data mining and (mis)use of our personal data. Do any of you mind? Do you think if there's nothing to hide then there's nothing to fear or is this just another example of the commercial sector's relentless erosion of privacy for financial gain?

    Your views please.
