I think the said change of terms is a BIG issue. in the face of society of information and flow of availability, the act of facebook is unthinkable. They are providers (and earn much from that) and not owners of the information that flows through the system.
Reacting to an online swell of suspicion about changes to Facebook’s terms of service, the company’s chief executive moved to reassure users on Monday that the users, not the Web site, “own and control their information.”
The online exchanges reflected the uneasy and evolving balance between sharing information and retaining control over that information
The subject arose when a consumer advocate’s blog shined an unflattering light onto the pages of legal language that many users accept without reading when they use a Web site.
This month, when Facebook updated its terms, it deleted a provision that said users could remove their content at any time, at which time the license would expire
Further, it added new language that said Facebook would retain users’ content and licenses after an account was terminated
