Facebook Reverts to Old Terms of Service

You still own what you post. That's the message Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg gave to users Wednesday when the social networking site reverted to its old Terms of Service agreement regarding rights to posted data.

A massive outcry erupted after the site changed the language in the terms Feb. 4 to imply it retained permanent ownership of any material a user put on Facebook, even if he or she disabled the account. The protests intensified Sunday after consumer advocacy blog Consumerist highlighted the changes.
