Is it legal to use pictures from facebook - I see the terms say

Recommended Posts

I am trying to make a collage - like picture for my feature slider and I am thinking about where I am going to get pictures that will be necessary. I was reading the terms for google and facebook etc and it says by posting your pictures you give us the irrevocable right to duplicate, distribute etc any pictures that you post on facebook. Does that mean that facebook pictures are in fact unprotected and public property? Thanks for the help - I just don't want any trouble.

You give them full ownership over the pictures, but not to the general public... Even if the actual uploaders lose ownership, you could still have legal problems with Facebook. IMO, it's not worth taking the risk :)
