Facebook Changes Terms of Service For Additional Rights Grab

Posted Sep. 20th, 2013 by Daniel J. Cox

Facebook is at it again. The American Society of Media Photographers has posted an informational page on the Terms of Service changes Facebook has made. Once again they are changing their Terms of Service to allow them even more rights to your online privacy, your photos and any other private or not so private information you post. I’m just about done with Facebook. I no longer post any of what I consider my serious photos on my Facebook Fan Page.  I’m actually seriously considering dropping the page all together. If I could get everybody from Facebook moved over to my Google+ page I would be much happier since Google+ has much more photography friendly Terms of Service, they don’t strip your contact information from your photos when you upload them and in short, Google+ is a much  better showcase for our photos.

Come join the much more photography friendly Google+ community.

    Dan,

    Thanks for always keeping us aware of this kind of activity. It seems that too many want to have free use of photography. I will also check out you Google+ account. Perhaps it is time to drop Facebook on its face.

    Thanks for the heads-up, Dan. I’ve already posted on my Facebook page that I will no longer put any of my marketable photos on Facebook. I’ll be expanding my use of Google+
