Facebook owns all of your content? What content?


Sasha Frere-Jones and others are deleting their Facebook accounts because of a new item in the TOS. Haunting. Important. Real.

Update: Dun dun dunnnn….draconian! (These people were probably inactive users just looking for an excuse.)

If Facebook thinks they can repackage my claim to have interest in “ninjas, epileptic chihuahuas, and silence” as a book, article, or film adaptation, they are more than welcome to try.

This should only be an issue for people who are uploading original photos and notes they’d like to see published at some point (“25 Things About Me”, Granta, Spring 2011)—in which case, UPLOAD THAT SHIT SOMEWHERE ELSE. And link to it if you must.

There. See? Not complicated.
