Highly unlikely that it will affect you, but their T&Cs given them permission to sell your images.
(In)famous case where they sold a UK beach holiday picture to Aussie advertisers. Unfortunately, it featured an under-16.
Err, you have to be careful just what you mean by sell. They have no rights to sell your photo. You still own it. What they can do is charge a 3rd party to embed a public picture in an online advert or webpage.
My personal photos, only shared to friends/family, would not be used for this purpose. Anything you post public is fair game for onward licensing.
Completely understand about posting in public. I've had stuff 'borrowed' from my training web site. One, when challenged, replied "I thought anything on the Internet was free" ...
I used to use the Visordown forum. The owner sold it to a commercial organisation. New T&Cs appeared giving them rights to reuse any content posted. Yes, you are still the person who created it, the copyright holder, but those T&Cs signed away your rights. Not a great concern to me but for other users it was.
Instagram also has rights to your content:
"When you share, post or upload content that is covered by intellectual property rights (such as photos or videos) on or in connection with our Service, you hereby grant to us a non-exclusive, royalty-free, transferable, sublicensable, worldwide licence to host, use, distribute, modify, run, copy, publicly perform or display, translate and create derivative works of your content"
An in the Fb example, it was a holiday snap.
I'd guess that AI searches would facilitate identification of suitable images.
Your 'standard' is how you drive alone, not how you drive during a test.
