The problem wasn’t that the language was confusing, the problem was that too many actually understood that the language was designed exactly for Facebook/Instagram to profit from the work of others. I’ve NEVER trusted Facebook, they have always, ALWAYS seemed to be ready to sell out their customers with the slightest provocation. So glad I have nothing to do with them.

“To be clear: it is not our intention to sell your photos.” It’s their intention to steal your photos for their profit. Facebook and Google keep attempting to sneak these provisions in their terms of service or privacy policies. They only back down when users and the media create negative press about it. These companies deserve to make a profit but it feels like they are always trying to sneak something past their users.

Their wording isn’t confusing: “a business may pay us to display your photos.”
