— Nov. 5: Instagram expands to the Web, though in limited form. Previously, users' profiles existed only on Instagram's mobile applications. With the change, users have a website with a profile photo, bio and a selection of the snapshots they've recently shared on Instagram, though they can't follow other users or upload photos.

— Monday: Instagram announces new terms of service and privacy policy to take effect Jan. 16. Users and privacy advocates complain over Instagram's new assertion that it may now receive payments from businesses to use your photos, user name and other data "in connection with paid or sponsored content or promotions, without any compensation to you."

— Tuesday: Following the outcry, Instagram says it will remove language suggesting that users' photos could appear in advertisements.
