  • Thanks ive done this and warned my friends and family!
  • cant sleep ames thats why i dont use it im not sure why and dont know how?x
  • Don't want to alarm anyone, but I am fairly sure that it says in the T&C's that facebook automatically own the rights to any picturess you post. No matter what your settings are. (unless this is a very recent change).

    I know that Facebook has been blocked from the computers in DH's office - specifically because of confidentiallity. As facebook can access your hard drive, and they have client records saved there. (they can access any other site - it is just facebook that has been blocked).

  • thanks ames. image x

    You own all of the content and information you post on Facebook, and you can control how we share your content through your privacy and application settings. In order for us to use certain types of content and provide you with Facebook, you agree to the following:

    For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, like photos and videos ("IP content"), you specifically give us the following permission, subject to your privacy and application settings: you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with Facebook ("IP License"). This IP License ends when you delete your IP content or your account (except to the extent your content has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it).
    When you delete IP content, it is deleted in a manner similar to emptying the recycle bin on a computer. However, you understand that removed content may persist in backup copies for a reasonable period of time (but will not be available to others).
