It’s What You Delete That Counts

I am addicted to Facebook. There I’ve said it. I know the dangers of using, but continue to sign in day and night because of pure lack of will power. Who knew that catching up with old friends, family and colleagues could be so addictive? Everyone I know is on Facebook and I can’t help it, I have to talk to them—all day.

Turns out, Facebook is more dangerous than I thought. In a recent article, Facebook turns away from using language in its terms of service that would allow them to use what you say any way they want, whether you deleted it or not. But Facebook didn’t back off because it suddenly decided it wasn’t the right thing to do. The decision came only after Facebook users protested the change and a few choice words from the consumer advocacy blog, The Consumerist posted its thoughts on the matter.

Now more than ever Facebook users should pay attention to the things they post on their page…and what they decide to delete.

Do you think that this will keep people from posting provocative images on themselves on their profile pics? I certainly hope so!

  1. It makes no sense that Facebook would risk messing up a good thing by edging in on people’s intellectual property. They had people’s trust and then they go and risk losing it; not smart.
