Another reason to not spend time on Facebook

Leo Leporte reports that Facebook has added a new “Feature”.  Automatically uploading your mobile device photos to Facebook.

That’s right, all your photos, straight to Facebook.  If you were paying attention to the “user agreement”, Facebook reserves the right to use everything you load on it, including pictures, anyway they see fit.

That Facebook gets the right to use your stuff is nothing new.  Been that way since just about Day One, if not before.

Here is a basic rule of the Internet you Coppertops need to understand.

If you aren’t paying for the service, you are the product.

  1. I’m glad I never did anything with Facebook. And that last line? Priceless. I am so stealing that.

  2. Feel free to steal that line. I can’t take credit for it. I heard some tech pundit use to in describing a similar situation. Somebody bitching about Facebook doing something they didn’t like.

    When I heard how much “closer” Facebook was going to be tied to the latest rev of IOS, I deleted the app off my iPhone.
