Are you still on Facebook? Did you know that they’ve changed their terms of service? Bascially, the new TOS say that they own you. Forever.
You hereby grant Facebook an irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, fully paid, worldwide license (with the right to sublicense) to (a) use, copy, publish, stream, store, retain, publicly perform or display, transmit, scan, reformat, modify, edit, frame, translate, excerpt, adapt, create derivative works and distribute (through multiple tiers), any User Content you (i) Post on or in connection with the Facebook Service or the promotion thereof subject only to your privacy settings or (ii) enable a user to Post, including by offering a Share Link on your website and (b) to use your name, likeness and image for any purpose, including commercial or advertising, each of (a) and (b) on or in connection with the Facebook Service or the promotion thereof.
Well, now…makes me glad I forsook them! So, now…are you STILL on Facebook?
Update: Looks like Facebook have returned to their original TOS, bowing in to public pressure (thanks Joe!):
