So, today when I logged into FB, I saw this:
The pressure mounting from within and without Facebook was too much. After reading the Facebook blog, I don’t know if they caved or just clarified. According to Zuckerman (Facebook CEO), they never said they “owned” the content. Odd, I wonder what removing this phrase means to them?
“You may remove your User Content from the Site at any time. If you
choose to remove your User Content, the license granted above will
automatically expire, however you acknowledge that the Company may
retain archived copies of your User Content.”
Sounds like they got to keep the license you granted them even if you remove the content. I’m glad they changed the TOS back. I was starting to rethink my use of FB. I still will continue to rethinking it. And, I will probably use it differently from now own since I had my eyes opened a little bit more about being “open” on the web.
