From one of my friend's feeds:


On Friday March 18, Facebook will start using your photos in ads that will appear on the profile page of your contacts. It's legal and is mentioned in the fine print when you create your account. TO stop this do the following: Account, Account Settings, Facebook Ads. Choose "No one" on the drop-down menu and save changes.

"Facebook Ads" is the last tab on the right at the top of the "Account Settings" page. WHen you go to the "Facebook Ads" page, there are actually two drop down menus: one for third-party ads and one for Facebook ads. Make sure you choose "no one" for both.

Thanks for the tip. A bit sneaky, it looks like only one drop down menu, you have to scroll past an ad to get to the second one.

Thanks for mentioning the ad, KatieC. I had changed it on the first drop down menu, but totally missed the second one.

So far everyone I know has had it set to "no one" when they went to change. Has anyone here has it sent to friends?

Yeah, mine was set to friends only when I looked. It's changed now.

Y'know, if you 'like' just about any of the "Facebook" pages, you get notifications when these changes take place...I know I already knew about the Facebook Ads thing -- I just can't remember which of the Facebook pages I 'like' that posted it (Facebook Canada, Facebook Safety, Facebook Security).
