Think it doesn’t matter? That you don’t care if the whole world sees what you’ve posted? What if Facebook was using your photo in ads? They might be. I came across this blog post today about Facebook could be using your photos in their ads.

I had no idea this was even an option or possibility and I pay pretty close attention to my facebook privacy settings.
