Facebook ads and your photos

Postby pink_trike » Tue Nov 24, 2009 4:54 am

Starting this Friday, Facebook will begin using your photos in ads that will appear on the profile page of your contacts. It's legal and is mentioned in the fine print when you created your account. To prevent your photos from being used in advertisments do the following: Settings, Privacy Settings, News Feed and Wall. Then click on Facebook Ads ( tab), choose "No one".

pass it on...

Mind is Empty
Emptiness is Clear Light
Clear Light is Union
Union is Great Bliss

Hi Mr Pink!

A message from Mr Facebook which was received when clicking on the 'facebook ads' tab:

Worried about privacy? Your photos are safe.
There have been misleading rumors recently about the use of your photos in ads. Don't believe them. These rumors were related to third-party applications, and not ads shown by Facebook. Get the whole story at the Facebook Blog, or check out the Help Center.

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.
