    All the More Reason to Avoid Facebook

    Beware Facebook's New Terms of Service

    Q: What Do These Changes Let Facebook Do With My Information And Content?
    A: Facebook is now able to exploit your name, likeness, content, images, private information, and personal brand by using it in advertising and in commercial and sponsored content — without any compensation to you. Facebook is monetizing not just your images, but a sizable portion of your entire online identity.

    What good is that going to do?

    A) It's a violation of Facebook's Terms of Service
    B) It will just make in more difficult to claim Intellectual Property Rights on stuff you have posted.

    I had always held the belief that Facebook was Evil, pure and simple. No reason for that attitude to change . . .

    I agree. I explained as much to a co-worker yesterday who used her same email accounts, etc for everything she did. I enjoy using facebook and will continue to enjoy it. All of my information, et al on that site, or any other social media site is bland, boring and vague and if true, is already "out there" due to a former job posting my papers and power point slides (remember those) as part of their resources to providers pages.. The email account I use is a "throwaway" one that not even the service I used has actual information.

    I only have "business" pages on Facebook, My space, etc. If they wanna promote my label or magazine for free, that's fine by me!

    Though, they don't do that, they want me to pay them to promote my pages and "increase my reach" and promise to get me a certain number of likes a day for a certain fee. If they can "guarantee" so many likes per day, how many are actually zombie accounts?

    I don't have any personal pages on those kinda sites, or any others that I can think of. In profiles I usually make up mostly BS.
