Me neither Mark. Don't even have a Facebook account, gave up on that 'time waster' long ago. Now use MSS to while away a rainy day!
I think you've been peeking at our weather forecast here Ralph!
Thank for the heads up...........even tho' I don't do facebook I always had an account which I would post photos......................they've been deleted .............just in case
Found this yesterday.........thought I'd pass it on
Thanks Terry. The insincere and indirect language used makes me trust them even less now!
Oh sure we put that in the terms of service but we’d never dream of doing it. We're not wrong, we're never wrong. You’re all just confused.
Yeah, right! LOL ;-)
What!!!!!!!! I'm sure their sincere;)
Corporate sincerity... that would be a first! <g>
They've changed their tune now, Mark! BUT it's the same old instrument!
As to the 'rainy day? just a figure of speech eh! Should be 'blizzard' in my case, Ha!
A little more info
So first they said:
"Some or all of the Service may be supported by advertising revenue. To help us deliver interesting paid or sponsored content or promotions, you agree that a business or other entity may pay us to display your username, likeness, photos (along with any associated metadata), and/or actions you take, in connection with paid or sponsored content or promotions, without any compensation to you."
And then they said:
"The language we proposed also raised question about whether your photos can be part of an advertisement. We do not have plans for anything like this and because of that we're going to remove the language that raised the question."
Er... so they inserted all that into the terms of service because they didn't have plans to introduce any of it?
I guess this is a good reminder to pay attention to changes in the small print.
And to you Terry. Maybe this would be better on a separate thread. I think this thread has served its purpose and I was going to close it today.
