Facebook recently and quietly slipped a change in its terms and conditions into effect without specifically telling its users about it. The change generated a massive backlash that finally forced Facebook to revert to the old terms and conditions.

The change was one that would have allowed Facebook the copyright to all user photos and comments posted even after the users cancelled their accounts. The move would have let Facebook use user's photos for whatever purposes they wanted forever.

The backlash to the changes was swift once users became aware and last night Facebook announced that it would be reverting to the old terms and conditions. This is the second major issue that Facebook has been forced to repeal after a user revolt.
