Even though Instagram backed down, I no longer trust Facebook in any way, shape or form. How long before they try to sneak something like this into their policy? Knee jerk reaction? Probably but why wait? I deleted all my pics from Facebook. The wife and kid will be doing the same.

I'm not overly sure I even want to keep my Facebook account.

"blame" is a strong word....I think you might be over-reacting a little though.

Maybe a bit. But this kind of move is a serious breach of trust to me. Would you want a pic of you at a gay pride parade being used by a group like the Westboro Baptist Church? It wouldn't matter what the context of the picture really was, they could buy it and use it. And there would be nothing you could do about it.

lol - actually , there may really be pictures of me at a gay pride event floating around somewhere. But since Im not ashamed to be seen in public with my gay friends, Westborough can go stuff themselves.

But seriously, I do take your point. It just seems a little late to be hoping on the "worried that Facebook will steal my life" bandwagon. I have always operated under the assumption that everything I post anywhere online is available for public viewing....

Public viewing is one thing. But selling my images without my consent is another. If WBC looks at a pic of me at a parade that's fine, but I sure as hell don't want them to OWN that pic.

Yeah....FB is becoming a bit of a monster. The funny thing is, so many people use it, but they can't capitalize on that the way they want. I mean, they went public and found out they have mediocre value, despite having such a HUGE membership. They make money primarily on ads, so they're looking to find other ways to take advantage of their popularity. It's sad. They can't be satisfied with being millionaires.
