Facebook sez, "Don't mind us, we're just whoring out your photos"
"All you have to do to prevent this is sign in to Facebook and click through to (get ready) -> Settings -> Privacy -> News Feed and Wall -> Facebook Ads -> Appearance in Facebook Ads and click "no one." Unless, of course, you want to be semifamous and have your picture used to push some garbage product or website without your knowledge. (note: when I tried to make this change just now, the site returned an error. oh, and it might not work in Firefox either due to a 'bug.')" - AJ Batac from Bookmarklet
Nice... The coming Facebook backlash is going to be interesting to watch. I give it 1 to 1.5 years. - mikepk
And I was surprised to see my setting set to "Appear on Facebook Ads". x_x Go here---> Settings -> Privacy -> News Feed and Wall -> Facebook Ads -> Appearance in Facebook Ads and click "no one." - AJ Batac
Interesting ownership of content rules over there, heh? - Jason Nunnelley
My Facebook Ads page is blank. Maybe because I only have my stuff opened to friends? - Anika
I disabled my AdBlock Plus to view that page Anika. - AJ Batac
Ah, okay let me try that. EDIT: Thanks! That worked. I was already selected to not appear in ads. - Anika
Good! Mine was set to appear to friends initially. Changed it to "none". - AJ Batac
Just one more reason to ignore FB. - Jeff Stannard
Thank you. - Nathalie
Yet another reason I stay away from Facebook. Too many privacy horror stories. - Manny

Because. - AJ Batac from iPod
heads up! ULTRA INTRUSIVE FACEBOOK ADS INCOMING! - vijay
I went to that part of the settings and this is the popup I got... "Worried about privacy? Your photos are safe. There have been misleading rumors recently about the use of 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." - Tony Miller
Third party content as in FB apps? Big difference there, eh? - Michael W. May
