Facebook Terms of Service changes.

Apparently there is a new TOS for Facebook, the interpretation of which is not exactly as I presented in the previous post/note. The group I joined seems to indicate that the rights dont terminate when you leave Facebook:

The old Facebook TOS is here:

The section which was removed from the TOS was this:

"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"

I would be very wary of uploading any creative IP content to Facebook anymore.

Sadly, most people would not have looked closely enough to notice the change in Facebook's Terms of Service... looks them social networkers are doing a good job of looking out for each other
