Facebook Photos Being Stolen for Ads

Monday, 15 Jun 2009

Imagine you are on vacation in a foreign country. You are walking the streets admiring the scenery when all of a sudden you look up at a billboard and notice that the family portrait that is advertising a high-end grocery store is yours. What the fudge!?

Don’t believe this can happen to you. Check out Danielle Smith’s similar story in the below video.

Moral of the story to all of us facebookers/myspacers/flikrers: beware because you never know where your photos might end up.

Here’s what I want to know: what happened when Danielle Smith confronted the company that is using her family portrait? Did she get paid? Was the company apologetic?
