Did You Fall For This Instagram Hoax?!

Does this message look familiar?! Probably because a lot of people were duped by an old Instagram hoax yesterday...

On Tuesday, you may have seen an alleged legal message that claimed Instagram was going to make all of their users' pictures and messages public. But guess what... This note has been around since at least 2012!

Many people on the social media platform re-posted the "warning." Celebrities like Usher, Meghan Rapinoe, Julia Roberts and Scooter Braun even fell for it. Energy Secretary Rick Perry even posted it too! Many of the stars were told it was a hoax and deleted the information from their pages.

For what it's worth, the head of Instagram Adam Mosseri said, "If you are seeing a meme claiming Instagram is changing its rules tomorrow, it's not true."

Did you see the meme?! Did you fall for it?
