ALERT: Facebook has agreed to let third party advertisers use your posted pictures without your permission. Click on SETTINGS up at the top where you see the log out link. Select PRIVACY. Then select NEWS FEEDS AND WALL. Next select the tab that reads FACE BOOK ADS. There is a drop down box, select NO ONE. Then SAVE your changes.



If you don't do this, they can use ANY or ALL of your pictures on ANY advertising they wish. Your face could end up on a singles ad, your kids faces could end up on ads.



PLEASE make these changes from your FACEBOOK home page.



I find it deplorable that NO ONE was notified of this!!!

If you join FB Governance Group you can vote on key issues like 3rd parties using our private pictures for advertisements?



What is a rumor?

I belong the the FB governance group....The creator of FB is the Admin of this group....This is where you could vote on which FB governing laws were the best......They posted yesterday that this was a rumor and that 3rd party ads were not allowed to use any personal info unless they ask for your specific permission first...For me the only ppl who an see any of my info are my friends.....

Facebook is ridiculous with claiming to own everything we post. I hope they like my potty mouth updates. I've deleted all blogs and should delete all my personal photos. I know that crap stays archived which is one reason why I don't bother. It sucks that this is a great place to share with friends and they want use our faces and our CHILDRENS faces for crap advertising.
