Pointless exercise.

the "like" button.

I pay for EPZ E2 and I want my photo on this site not FB, Tweeter ...etc... I want to decide if I want my photos on other sites, not because someone click on a "like" button because EPZ wants to grow bigger.

Hmmmm...just had a look at your page and quote:

'Why not have a look at my PF or
the various albums?
They are awaiting your visit. I'm sure your curiosity will be rewarded.
Some photos might even give you the idea to travel and meet some amazing people and have a most reward holiday.'


...with such a seemingly positive approach I am surprised you do not wish to share the love???...and reach a wider audience???

So - someone 'else' likes your image and wants to tells his/her mates on Facebook and there's no FB button.

You think you're 'protected????

Wake up.

URL - copy. Go to facebook. Hit the 'Link' button - paste the copied URL - add a comment.

Job Done.

Identify the difference.

Yes Cathy T, the invitation is for people on EPZ not FB ...etc...

Freedom of choice. I chose EPZ and another site but I don't want to "share the love" when it's not my decision.

What a shame........and as Mike correctly stated....people can link and post to anything on the internet...with or without your permission.....its the nature of the beast ...so why not use it in a positive way to your advantage???

EXACTLY!!!!
Yes, people steal photos, copy articles ...etc... Yes, I know all that.

My personal choice is not to be as far as I'm aware having my photos on various sites without my knowledge even if it's a thumbnail with a link. So a opt out would be great.

I will not click on the "likes" button when I go through EPZ galleries. I don't see the point and want to be free about my decision.

We allow opt-outs for practically everything. Why force people to have thumbnails of their photos put on FB etc if they don't want it?

Pete has already said it doesn't particularly benefit EPZ, from a revenue point of view, anyweay.
