    ATTENTION: On Friday, Facebook will start using your photos in ads that will

    appear on the profile page of your contacts. It's legal and is mentioned in the

    fine print when you create your account. TO stop this do the following:

    Account then Account Settings, Then click on Facebook Ads, choose "No one" on the drop-down menu and save changes. Copy this and use in a status update to alert your friends

    Those settings have been there for ages, they used to use your name in the ads. I guess they are doing pictures now.

    I know. Underneath an ad they would mention that so and so visited this site.

    I have clicked on some of those "russian chicks need a date". Just for a look of course.

    Does this mean my Mom knows this?? :confused:
