Instagram's top user Kim Kardashian says she may quit using the popular photo-sharing app!

Kim Kardashian could be kissing her Instagram account and 5.7 million followers goodbye!

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians starlet is concerned about the photo-sharing app's new policies, which the company originally announced on Monday.

Under the revised privacy policy, Instagram seemingly would be allowed to sell or advertise using users' photos without their permission or compensation.

And that wasn't okay with Kim, who's the app's top user. "I just don't think they should have the right to sell [our photos] to advertising companies on our behalf," she told TMZ yesterday in LA. "What if we don't want to advertise what they want?"

"I just hope they revise it," she added. It seems the Instagram gods were listening, as they now say they in fact won't own your photos or sell them.

In a new blog post, Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom said, "You also had deep concerns about whether under our new terms, Instagram had any plans to sell your content. I want to be really clear: Instagram has no intention of selling your photos, and we never did. We don't own your photos - you do."

The new policies won't go into effect until Jan. 19, 2013 and as of today, Kim's Instagram is still up and running. Whew! Looks like she'll be sticking around.
