Facebook Terms Of Service Controversy


Facebook owns you!

Popular social networking site Facebook changed its terms of service two weeks ago, and boy did that stir up a stink. The new TOS stated that Facebook owned all your pictures, information, and anything you wrote on your account, even after you close it.

This upset many Facebook fans, who decided to protest the move–a lot. The 88,000-member-strong “People Against the New Terms of Service” Facebook group was one of the most outspoken opponents of the new policy.

On Wednesday Facebook released this statement, stating that is doing away with its new Terms of Service agreement and going back to the old way of doing things.

Terms of Use Update

Over the past few days, we have received a lot of good feedback about the new terms we posted two weeks ago. Because of this response, we have decided to return to our previous Terms of Use while we resolve the issues that people have raised.

Thoughts on this?
