Who owns your photos?

In fact, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are notorious for subjugation of rights of any image uploaded to their pages: make sure you don’t put anything of value there, and certainly not in full resolution. Even though you can upload full resolution, only a compressed version is displayed to save bandwidth. Ever wonder what happens to the full resolution versions? Think carefully.
