Which means even if you delete and remove your account any content, including your images will still remain.
Many members are angry at the changes, with groups protesting and asking Facebook to re-think the alterations they have made. One group is even counting down to a mass deletion of accounts with one member saying: “Mark Z. You've gone too far.”
Founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerburg has posted a response which states Facebook wouldn't share your information in a way you wouldn't want and that people own their information and control who they share it with. He wrote: “A lot of the language in our terms is overly formal and protective of the rights we need to provide this service to you. Over time we will continue to clarify our positions and make the terms simpler.
Still, the interesting thing about this change in our terms is that it highlights the importance of these issues and their complexity. People want full ownership and control of their information so they can turn off access to it at any time. At the same time, people also want to be able to bring the information others have shared with them—like email addresses, phone numbers, photos and so on—to other services and grant those services access to those people's information. These two positions are at odds with each other. There is no system today that enables me to share my email address with you and then simultaneously lets me control who you share it with and also lets you control what services you share it with.
We're at an interesting point in the development of the open online world where these issues are being worked out. It's difficult terrain to navigate and we're going to make some missteps, but as the leading service for sharing information we take these issues and our responsibility to help resolve them very seriously. This is a big focus for us this year, and I'll post some more thoughts on openness and these other issues soon
