Facebook Agreement Summary


With Zuckerberg`s employees currently overloaded, the Observer is proud to announce that it has developed a new human-readable user agreement that pays homage to Zuckerberg`s new commitment to “transparency.” This is it. A: Whether Facebook uses or sells your images is just the beginning of the problem. There are countless other privacy and data protection issues. There are also some very important business and legal concerns to consider for photographers. For example, imagine a customer coming to you in a few months and wanting to get a photo of you for exclusive commercial use. If this image is posted on Facebook, you cannot offer exclusivity to that customer, as Facebook`s existing license for that image would be a conflict. If you comply with this agreement, you may be in breach of either contract. No one likes to read terms of use and agreements, but at a time when our identities are being marketed and exploited, it`s more important than ever to understand what you agree with when using these services. These Terms of Use are open, vague and extensive. Please take the time to read them or contact us with any questions tos@asmp.org.

This specific section of Facebook`s Terms of Service contains agreements about who can and cannot use Facebook and what is not, and the things you can and cannot do on the platform. In the wake of Mark Zuckerberg`s “Grillen” by Congress, here`s a rewritten user agreement that painfully shows what the social network is doing One of the few consistent posts from the blunt interrogation of Mark Zuckerberg by the U.S. Senate was the moving desire for Facebook`s user agreement to be understandable to people. Or, as Republican Senator John Kennedy of Louisiana said, here`s what everyone tried to tell you today – and I say this softly – is your user agreement. The purpose of a user agreement is to cover the back of Facebook and not to inform users of their rights. If you explain this to a 13-year-old, indicate that the deal is commercial: the more you and billions of others are connected to Facebook, the more money Facebook makes by selling your personal data and the more powerful it becomes. Too much power concentrated everywhere— politics, economics, philanthropy — often ends badly. 8. But for now, all that`s important to me is that you join our wonderful community and that you spent at least an hour a day using our excellent services. . . .
