Question from Darla: Hi Rick. I hope you can answer a question about Facebook for me.
I’m an amateur photographer but I’m hoping to go pro before too long.
I regularly upload some of my best photos to my Facebook profile to get feedback from my friends and other photographers.
I was chatting with one of my photographer friends the other day and she said once I upload a photo to Facebook they automatically become the copyright holder of that photo and they can do anything they want to with it.
First of all, is that true? And if it is, will deleting my Facebook account also delete the photos and return the copyright for them back to me?
This really has me upset so I hope you can give me an answer ASAP. Thanks so much in advance!
