Despite Privacy Concerns, Vanessa Hudgens Creates Instagram Account

Posted Saturday December 22, 2012 2:00 PM GMT

After the recent uproar over Instagram's new user policy earlier this week, Vanessa Hudgens created a page, despite the controversy.

The "High School Musical" star announced on her first photos, "Oh. Hello. Officially on Instagram" on her @VanessaHudgens account.

Also sharing the news with her Facebook fans, she posted, "Oh hey hey. I’m officially on Instagram. Where you at?!"

Though many users, including a host of celebrities, expressed concern that their photos would be sold, company co-founder Kevin Systrom attempted to clarify the changes.

He insists, "Instagram users own their content and Instagram does not claim any ownership rights over your photos. Nothing about this has changed. We respect that there are creative artists and hobbyists alike that pour their heart into creating beautiful photos, and we respect that your photos are your photos. Period. I always want you to feel comfortable sharing your photos on Instagram and we will always work hard to foster and respect our community and go out of our way to support its rights.”
