Taming Facebook: pause for update

I've had an extremely long day (it's 2am) and haven't even looked at Facebook settings. But I do have some additional information to give you regarding photos on facebook.

When you set your privacy settings for tagging photos you can prevent others from tagging you in photos, but you cannot keep them from downloading your photos from your profile, and you can't keep them from posting photos of you. All you can do is keep them from tagging you in the photo. So even if you only let your friends see a photo, nothing prevents them from downloading it and posting it on their own Facebook page. Of course, if you spend much time with them they probably already have plenty of photos you woudn't want the world to see.

I will work on some more Facebook privacy settings for tomorrow and finish either tomorrow or Friday.
