Be wary of Facebook...

posted on 16th of february, 2009

You probably heard about it already, but just in case...

On Feb. 4th, Facebook changed their terms of service (without telling anyone, because their terms of service give them the right to do so).

Basically, the biggest change is that whatever content is uploaded to Facebook belongs to them FOREVER, and that remains true even if the person that posted the content leaves the site.

Needless to say, that means that any image you upload on Facebook becomes theirs to sell and use as they wish.

Given the uproar that this change has caused, I can see them going back to the old TOS pretty soon, but once again Facebook showed that they cannot be trusted and that they are ready to do anything to generate income.

Shame, really...
