Facebook allows advertisers to use your picture

It is my opinion that we should expect that there are no absolutes in regards to safety and security...at all. With that in mind, the story about pictures in Facebook accounts being used for advertisements (Facebook now lets advertisers use your picture) doesn't surprise me. As we've discussed many times, things are noted in "Terms of Service" and "End-User License Agreements" that people don't read and/or understand.

To "opt out" of the Facebook ads:
go to Settings, then Account Settings...
on the My Account tab, in the Privacy section, choose "manage"...
go to News Feed and Wall, then the Facebook Ads tab...
and for Appearance in Facebook Ads, change it to "no one".
