What’s Facebook Up To? New Updated Terms of Service
"We also can remove or restrict access to your content..."
Facebook is a necessary evil for me. And honestly if it wasn't for work, I'd take my pictures and go. No matter how long it would take. You can delete you account and take your stuff with you. Did you know that?
Before deleting your account, you may want to log in and download a copy of your information (like your photos and posts) from Facebook. After your account has been deleted, you won't be able to retrieve anything you've added. (Facebook)
I am not a fan of the new look and the classic version will not be available starting this month.
I hate the ads. I think I would be willing to pay a small fee for an ad free version. And when you hide an ad, they want to know why so they can show you better ads. Just...no.
And when you joined Facebook, did you really read the terms of service? Do you know what permissions you gave them with your stuff? And how many times folks tried this move?
" I do not give Facebook or any entities associated with Facebook permission to use my pictures, information, messages or posts, both past and future." (Forbes)
Read the terms of service people. You join, you pretty much say they can do what they want with you stuff.
Specifically, when you share, post, or upload content that is covered by intellectual property rights on or in connection with our Products, you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, and worldwide license to host, use, distribute, modify, run, copy, publicly perform or display, translate, and create derivative works of your content (consistent with your privacy and application settings). This means, for example, that if you share a photo on Facebook, you give us permission to store, copy, and share it with others (again, consistent with your settings) such as service providers that support our service or other Facebook Products you use.This license will end when your content is deleted from our systems. (Facebook)
And starting in October, they kick it up a notch. Cause, current political climate, election, Russians, whatever. Did you get this notice?
So we just jumped from we can do what we want with your stuff to we can censor what we want when we want because of vague legalese?
The public response has been less than complimentary.
Is this enough to make you quit Facebook or you still sticking around?
