    hey everyone, i know previously we exhausted the subject of facebook, and what they can do if you upload stuff to them, but you always had the recouse of deleted your accoutn and content... well .. guess what.. not anymore. now even after you remove it, they still have access to do what they want. the removed the lines that covered the whole "you remove it we dont use it" part.

    Well,

    You don't get anything for free. Facebook is a tremendous marketing tool.

    Surely some photogs, like myself, have gotten work by posting photos on facebook, either in a group, or to groups, or just in albums.

    I guess it's up to the photog to decide whether it's likely facebook will ever use the 600x600 pixel photos you add, and if they do, was the return on the risk worth while.

    Put work on the internet, expect it get stolen.

    At least facebag puts it up front. And of course a site like that is going to have a blanket statement like this... If they didn't, it could open them up to litigation for years and years.

    I don't support it, I understand it.

    From this morning on Facebook:

    Terms of Use Update

    Over the past few days, we have received a lot of feedback about the new terms we posted two weeks ago. Because of this response, we have decided to return to our previous Terms of Use while we resolve the issues that people have raised. For more information, visit the Facebook Blog.

    If you want to share your thoughts on what should be in the new terms, check out our group Facebook Bill of Rights and Responsibilities.
