Facebook user fury over content rights
Recent changes to the Facebook terms of service have sparked outrage in the social media platform, with users responding angrily to Facebook claiming ownership to user’s content, even if it is deleted.
“The February 4 change to the terms of service — the online agreement that users must accept to join — included language giving Facebook “perpetual worldwide license” to anything posted on the network. The move sparked a backlash among users with more than 85,000 joining a Facebook group “People Against the new Terms of Service””.
“Facebook should now be called The Information Blackhole,” one commenter proclaimed. “What goes in never comes out. Be careful what you huck in there.”
Zuckerberg said a new group had been created — “Facebook Bill of Rights and Responsibilities” — to allow users to post “questions, comments and requests.”
Zuckerberg said the terms would be revised — but with the input of users this time.
