Facebook’s Terms Of Abuse.

I have  an account  on Facebook and use it to occasionally keep in touch with  people, but as a photographer I don’t put ANYTHING on there because  their  terms of  service/terms of use would  lay a LARGE claim to my  work.

Recently Facebook changed their already abysmal terms of service to worse than abysmal terms of  service.

When enough people raised a stink they reinstated  their original abysmal terms of service.

Facebook’s terms of  use are still unreasonably  greedy and as such I’m careful about what  I’m willing to post there. Until they have more  content provider  friendly terms of use, I’m  keeping  my distance. Links:
