What about sharing things like Youtube videos - of the kind where someone combines someone else's music with someone else's images, like this WH40K video:
Does it violate any terms of service? Could I get sued by, say, RIAA for sharing something like that? Sorry if it's a weird question, copyright laws make my head hurt...
Thanks. So, I can only follow pages that are on FB? There's no mechanism for me to follow, say, blogger posts or webcomics (that don't have a FB page)?
Another question I thought of: how do I share a photo? Does every photo I upload get shared on my wall / timeline (or whatever it's called now)?
On more serious note, are there any privacy settings? Can I control who sees what etc.?
Long time Facebook user here. Been around that thing since it was THEFacebook, back when it was only for students with an .edu email address... Dating myself, I know.
Sharing a video off of YouTube is no biggie. If it violates any terms of service on Facebook, it could get "reported" but you will not get sued or anything major. Worst that can happen is that it will get taken down. Or you'll get the "Content Unavailable" space on there.
And you can only follow or subscribe to Facebook pages on Facebook, yes. Most authors or bloggers will have Facebook pages, however. You just have to search them out. Usually on their blogs or websites there will be a little Icon directing you there. At least, there should be if their marketing has done its job.
When you can "post" to your Facebook wall it gives you the option to uploading a photo. Yes, it will notify everyone you are friends with that you have uploaded this photo if you don't choose certain options. You can choose NOT to publish photos. Which means they will be on your page, but won't show up on others newsfeeds. You can also choose for certain photos to only be viewable to friends, or a certain set of friends. And not the general public.
I highly, highly recommend going through your Settings. Privacy Settings and all. It gives you a lot of options for people's ability to search for you, not search for you, view your photos, etc.
Hope this helps!! Feel free to ask any other questions.
