Facebook doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to privacy and they haven’t always properly guarded the privacy rights of its users.

Earlier this year, an online revolt among Facebook users over the question of who owns content posted to the website forced Facebook to withdraw a new "terms of service" document that raised concerns among users. I guess that’s a form of dialogue…
