Apparently in the past couple of weeks FaceBook has changed its TOS in such a way that allows them to use your posted photos, videos and content you have posted in any way they want even if you have canceled your account. This step didn’t go over well with what seems to be a large portion of the FaceBook users, including some of my friends who contemplated removing all their photos and videos, and some who wanted to cancel their account altogether and then were concerned whether their personal/private media will be deleted too, or still “float” somewhere on FaceBook‘s servers.
Many of those concerned members have expressed their thoughts and criticism, and just a few minutes ago an announcement popped up on all user profiles with the following message:
Personally I wonder what does “…while we resolve the issues that people have raised.” means. Is it “until we find a way to grab your media in a way our lawyers claim is legal?” or is this a “no worries folks, we wont snag your photos away from you” kind of a message?
