When I post to Instagram, Flickr, Imgur, Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr, do I lose the copyright to my photos?

sharingiconsCC0Most major image-sharing websites have terms of service that state that when you post your photos, you continue to own the copyright, but you grant the website a license to copy and distribute them. Below is information about image rights for several popular websites. I have included links to their Terms of Service below so you can check the current terms. Terms of service may change, so you should always make sure to be aware of the current terms for any website or service where your photos are posted.
