Have you seen this?

So Facebook has basically gone viral. I've been on for over a year and a half and the number of people signing up has grown exponentially since this past December. It's exciting to meet up with people I haven't seen in years and to catch up on their lives. It's a great social networking tool.

But, did you know that today FB changed the terms of service agreement? You might be interested in what terms you've now agreed to.

I just read that change. I think it's pretty ridiculous and unethical.

That really sucks.
I'm not on FB, but my husband is and he has put some of our photos on there. I don't like the idea that you give up rights to your own stuff, and worse that it applies even if you delete it, so you have no choice in the matter.

yes, i noticed they changed their terms. flickr is the same about images shared there too. there have been lots of law suits (sp) in regards to large corporations stealing images. that's why i've been in the habit of putting my watermark on my images. i think i better continue the practice on facebook.
