Facebook’s Users Ask Who Owns Information
Who owns the information posted on Facebook? Do you own your own info? Does Facebook? Despite the panic over a recent wording change, Mark Zuckerberg says you shouldn’t worry, you control your own info.
This month, when Facebook updated its terms, it deleted a provision that said users could remove their content at any time, at which time the license would expire. Further, it added new language that said Facebook would retain users’ content and licenses after an account was terminated.
