Hello Group Members,
Last week I mentioned the new Facebook T & C.
Basically Facebook can sell your images to THEIR clients while THEY get paid for it.
But reality made a much better point than anything I could have thought of.
To demonstrate just how serious this is when it goes wrong read on. Photographer David McGhee send me a link to the worst possible case scenario of what happens when Facebook allows their advertisers to take your images without any safety precautions.
They allowed a dating company use an image of a young woman who committed suicide after her rape subjected her to cyber bullying. Read the tragic story here.http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/09/18/facebook-removes-dating-ads-featuring-photo-of-dead-girl/
Enough. I am sick to my stomach reading this. Time to do something. You cannot take the risk that your images, personal or professional end up that way.
Please join us in writing to facebook and complaining until they change there terms.
