Facebook Returns To Original Terms of Service


Posted February 18, 2009 - By Stephen Johnson

Yesterday we reported that social networking behemoth Facebook had changed its terms of service to read "We own everything you post, always--plus your soul." (That's a paraphrase.) Today, after an internet outcry, the company behind Facebook has changed their tune and reverted to the old Terms of Service. Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg explained on the company's blog:

"Over the past couple of days, we received a lot of questions and comments about the changes and what they mean for people and their information. Based on this feedback, we have decided to return to our previous terms of use while we resolve the issues that people have raised."

So you can all relax--no one wants to own the rights to the awesome pictures of you and your friends hanging out at the pool. But if you need something to worry about, consider that Facebook only temporarily reverted to the old TOS until it "resolves the issues that people have raised." It could come back with anything!

Oh, and by the way, there probably aren't 25 interesting things about you.

Attack of the Show discussed Facebook's TOS changes on yesterday's Loop. Check it out in the video below:
