Remember the outrage that occurred when Facebook secretly changed its Terms Of Services just months ago?? Now, there’s a solution to it As normal computer users, we don’t usually track change in lengthly TOS of social services that we use on a daily basis, so usually changes in TOS may go undetected and these changes may compromise our rights like privacy and safety. So TOSBack, the newly launched TOS tracker tracks changes across 44 website policies like Facebook, YouTube and Google. Anytime it detects a change in the policies, it will post an update to notify us of the changes in the policies, which is easy to see by comparing the old TOS and new TOS side-by-side. No more TOS woes — now this is a handy tool we all need.
If you have not noticed that Facebook has changed their TOS (Terms Of Service) on 4 February 2009, then you really should take a look at their new TOS. It seems like Facebook now has access to your content and though you still can close your Facebook account, you may not be able to remove all the stuffs and content you post online and Facebook can do whatever it wants to your content!!

In short this means that your status updates, the photos and any stuffs you posted on Facebook will belong to Facebook now which is really creepy as you can no longer have control over your content. Bottom line: Don’t post anything you do not want others to have access too. Check out Twitter for the latest updates on this issue or join the Facebook group against the TOS and hopefully Facebook will give us back our content soon.
