Facebook is being accused of spying on Instagram users through their cell phone cameras!

According to Bloomberg, In July there was a report about the Instagram app accessing iPhone cameras without user permission - Facebook blamed it on a bug they said triggered a false notification - they also said they were correcting the glitch.

This Lawsuit, of course, claims it wasn’t a bug, that the use of the camera was intentional to collect quote “lucrative and valuable data on its users” – no comment from Facebook just yet.
