    1. the workaround.. in many cases… is definitely posting a link to your content somewhere with a better ToS, vimeo, flickr, youtube…. and if Facebook is playing nice with said service, the content will appear embedded on your profile.

  1. @Eric – While this may work for youtube videos, it doesn’t benefit images. Losing the ability to tag people in photos is a HUGE loss. If you decide to just post links, you also lose the easy ability to track the comments and likes on a video/photo. The labor of scrolling back into your wall history to find past comments can be rather deterring. The chances of someone commenting on your flickr album are also severely low compared to facebook photo commenting/liking.

    Tagging people without their consent is spam? I agree. But on the flip side, what about tagging your friends who you just want to share this to but are not absolutely sure whether they “approve of your tagging”? What if I took a really cool photo and wanted to share it with specific people. The only other options would be to post on their wall, chat and tell, msg and tell, or another form of possible spam.

    Where is the delineating line that separates sharing from spamming?

      1. If you feel it’s trash, then it’s your social responsibility to remove it and tell them as such. However, there’s not much we can do about spam on social media. Just think on the bright side, they were trying to share something they cared about. They didn’t mean to spam you.

  2. I am sorry Facebook, but your social network is not covered by canspan act that protects emails.

    Tagging someone in a photo is not considered spam by law, only by your terms of service.
