Facebook Uses Your Pictures On Their Advertisements Without Your Permission

Posted on

I’ve written a few times about how we are mercilessly pounded by advertisements and they can be like a horrifying virus, sucking our brain cells out of our heads. Next thing you know you own a chia pet.

Facebook now allows third part advertisers to use your posted pictures without your permission. Do I want my picture beside Facebook advertisements in my friend’s Facebook pages? No ….fucking …way! I I can see it now – Terry loves Hummers that use rare Spotted Owls as fuel.

Here is how to remove your picture from being used for Facebook advertising.

Click on SETTINGS up at the top where you see the Log out link. Select Privacy. Then select NEWSFEEDS and WALL. Next select the tab that reads FACEBOOK ADS. There is a drop down box, select NO ONE. Then SAVE your changes.

Now you can relax and not worry about your friends seeing your face beside a Paris Hilton doll advertisement.
