Who Owns Your Info?

Facebook has been at the heart of many controversies, including inability to delete data.  It’s not too surprising, though-any group with 175 million members is bound to have its fair share of dustups.  Most recently, though, people are abuzz because Facebook changed its terms of service earlier this month.  The new terms suggest that even after you leave the service Facebook retains some rights to the content that you added.  Take a look at the Terms of Use yourself-most people skip such things.  And you can also look at stories from the New York Times, or the Chicago Tribune.  You might want to look at the blog that broke the story, The Consumerist, or the response on the Facebook blog.

    The NYT reports today that Facebook has retracted the offensive language from their click-through contract.
