Further commitment to better quality pictures

I’ve bought the new Canon 16-35mm f2.8L mk3 lens – a significant investment but one that’s necessary to have the best image quality available.   As one of my favourite and most used lenses for all types of work no other manufacturer has a lens of this quality at this focal length.  It’s truly an amazing lens!

Facebook and their right to use your pictures

0
I recently had a discussion about posting links to Facebook groups (ie. via Flickr) instead of posting directly to Facebook.  Some Facebook group owners don’t like links being posted, maybe because links are traps for unsuspecting users to have their hard drive wiped, their bank accounts emptied and their children sold to slavery?
 
What’s actually wrong with posting a link to (for example) a Flickr.com page where a large thumbnail of the picture appears in the Facebook post anyway?
 
Did you know that by uploading/posting photos and videos to Facebook gives Facebook a license to use your content in any way it sees fit? And the license goes beyond that – it can transfer or sub-license its rights over a user’s content to another company or organisation if needed.  More on, Facebook’s license does not end upon the deactivation or deletion of a user’s account.
 
As a professional photographer I’ve had images stolen and used without my permission so I tend to put watermarks on my pictures where possible (not that it’ll stop people determined to steal your image).  And usually instead of uploading them directly to Facebook I link them to an external photo sharing website which is free to use and more importantly is also safe to use.
 
If the owners of these groups insist that pictures have to be uploaded directly then surely they must also ensure to warn their users about Facebook using your pictures as it sees fit?
