Evie19:  good question! I have no idea, and would love to hear from other bees on this. Also, I know my comment is useless, but I love seeing my friends on the boards and wanted to say Hi and make sure you got at least 1 reply 😛

I have no idea but I generally stand by whatever you out online private or not is out there forever with the possibility it isn’t as private as you think.

Evie19:  it is in the TOS for the site. Any image uploaded onto their site becomes their property to do with as they please. Would they use some random persons photo, probably not but you do agree to let them when you sign up. 

Your privacy settings on your account do not overwrite the TOS.

I don’t know, but wouldn’t doubt it. I am aware that one of the very few things FB will take down at your request are unauthorized photos that are posted by others of your minor children.  I never post photos of my own or other people’s kids, period.

I’m sure they must. Ever see the pix they use? Those aren’t professionally done.
