Re:  FACEBOOK ALERT!!!

When I click on "Facebook Ads", I don't get any dropdown, I get this:

Worried about privacy? Your photos are safe.
There have been misleading rumors recently about Facebook using your photos in ads. Don't believe them. These rumors were related to third-party applications, and not ads shown by Facebook. Get the whole story at the Facebook Blog, or check out the Help Center.

Hmmm. I guess I'm supposed to trust them? Maybe I'd feel better having the option to select "No One" anyway... just in case.

Re:  FACEBOOK ALERT!!!

yeah I see that now too. I did choose the "no one" option when I posted this but now I don't even see the option so its just not those who have not chosen it. Besides that I think if they allow the 3rd party applications then they should safeguard their members.

Re:  FACEBOOK ALERT!!!

Thanks P, that did the trick. There's probably something to said for irony that an ad blocking application was in fact keeping me from correcting some ad blocking settings on a site. Oh well. Stupid thing was set to "no one" already anyway...

Of course none of that matters if its the 3rd party aps and not Facebook sending out pics. I'm not to photogenic so maybe they'll steal someone else's first.

Re:  FACEBOOK ALERT!!!

My sister had the exact same problem as you and as did I. It is a bit funny.
