Time to rev up those delete buttons: Facebook plans to pass your photographs to advertisers and make users the stars of online ads

Recommended Posts

Def illegal in my country, no question about it.


“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. 
It matters that you don't just give up.”

-Stephen Hawking

Oh Zucks.. they're at it again..

 

I wouldn't be surprised if they have something in their ToS that basically gives them immunity against any complaints or lawsuits and if the option to opt out is harder to find than Waldo.

TOS doesn't and cannot overrule GDPR. This shit won't fly in EU. Thank god. Maybe they could make it as something people could opt for themselves, but why the F would you do that lol? I'm so glad I'm not on or using Facebook entirely...

Hopefully they don't get the chance to even start doing that.

 

If they do it, then it should be something you opt in, not opt out of.


Here's a list of Discord servers, cause why not.

I already though this was a thing at least to a degree. Funny I don't have a single picture of myself on FB I only post music links, gaming related shit and such. Don't post much at all even, mainly use it to follow stuff.

It may not even get off the ground anywhere. I wonder how they will explain that the TOS is functionally no different from a model release. Because I think that's not going to be an easy claim to back up.

Not even the worst thing this week. Heard the latest yarn off the news Zuck wants local governments to police their principality of FaceBook. What does FB even employ moderators for now? Useless.

Repeating the same old : Facebuk should be completely banned everywhere.

I'm starting to think we should think of Facebook like the Opium Wars period, where Facebook is the Opium. In the future, Social Media will be banned and looked down upon with great disdain.

I don't think they'll be using mine, it has me holding a named bottle of whiskey over someone passed out from alcohol poising on a camp bed. Probs not the brand image they want to give out, "look our whiskey makes a lightweight a paralytic after 7 shots"

Add a Copyright watermark to whatever you upload and sue them when they manipulate your content.

I am sure that in their terms of service, which nobody ever reads but everyone agrees to, it says that you give them the full rights to whatever you upload.

 

Honestly, at this point, if people haven't stopped using facebook, after all the scandals that have come out, they wont ever stop. This is also what Facebook is banking on. They are seeing: Hey, we can do whatever, people will keep using it anyway.

Uhm, yeah, it totally would. Terms of service are terms of service you agree to. It is a legally binding agreement. If you don't agree, you cannot use the product. Simple as that.

Good thing I am uglier than sin. Nobody would use my face in an Ad. All those years of not seeing the sun playing World of Warcraft have finally paid off.

Can we chill with the irrational panic for a moment?  Repeat after me:

 

PATENTS ARE NOT PRODUCT ROADMAPS.

 

This merely means that Facebook has explored the idea, not that it's guaranteed to happen.  Companies like Apple and Samsung will patent fanciful product ideas that never come to pass.  Of course, it's not great to know that Facebook has explored this idea, but you should only start worrying if there's evidence of product development... and there isn't.

Maybe they patented it to keep others from ever doing this morally reprehensible idea. /s

Not a big deal. I just have to make sure there is a dixie flag in all of my pictures. It's the best advertising deterrent.

Id opt for a a hidden water mark of a swastika. Once you find your photo being used expose the company for useing photos with swastikas in them.

Not in Auistralia or most of Europe.  ToS do not trump law.  Even contracts you sign in Australia are null and void if the contract is one sided,  In other words contracts that prevents you from using a service unless you sign away all your rights to CR material is not a legally binding contract. 


QuicK and DirtY. Read the CoC it's like a guide on how not to be moron.  Also I don't have an issue with the VS series.

You are 100% correct but with some anonymization they might get around GDPR with some photos but what they can't get around is article 13, yes the one everyone hates.  With article 13 you as the owner can actually demand all the revenue your work have generated.

 

FaceBook might introduce this outside EU but I doubt it.
