It was when I came across an item on Amazon and posted a link to it on my facebook page. A bunch of my friends commented on it and it became a long thread.
The next day, I get an email from a friend with a snapshot of his facebook page's sponsored stories. There was my status update with the link to the item on amazon, my photo along with the whole conversation/thread.
Is this legal? Can I sue facebook?
I read an article about this awhile back. Apparently FB is doing this to everybody now. As to whether it's legal and/or you can sue them, you probably gave all those rights away when you clicked accept/agree on the TOS statement. But only your lawyer will know for sure...
I just found this! Check it out!
"Facebook to give users more control over controversial ads
The social network's settlement terms -- for a class-action law suit over using people's profile photos and other info in ads -- includes more control for users, Reuters reports."

If you Knowingly Sign Off on your Privacy Rights.... then don't bleat when your Privacy gets abused... you authorized the privacy breaches when you agreed to use their site.. surely you didn't expect them to be responsible and ethical, when their primary objective has always been to make money out of what can only be described as 'the foolishness of their users!'
Facebook can legally use anything on Facebook to promote Facebook and its services. So, no.
No. It will appear for your friends as sponsored story.
That´s all. That way your friends can see and like what you like, and brands get more engagement.
To overcome this latest nuisance from Facebook, do the following....
Open your facebook account
Then select "account settings"
Select "Facebook ads" on the bottom of the left panel.
Select "Adverts viewed by third parties" -
edit your third party advert settings, then
choose "No One".
Save your changes.
It will not use your photos.
Facebook is good - once you learn how to use it!
They cannot override your privacy rights without your permission.
It's not that I mind so much. I just need commission on the sales they get from my post

We are just pawns for advertising. We have no control over our own information. I hardly post anything personal, yet people post...
