Facebook

Do mi konsideris krei konton cxe Facebook. Tamen mi nun havas dubojn post kiam mi legis tion kion oni konsentu antaux ol rajti uzi gxin ( http://www.facebook.com/terms.php ): So I was considering setting up a Facebook account. But then I read the user agreement (at http://www.facebook.com/terms.php ) and have re-read what plenty of people have been upset about:
[Multaj oficialaj tradukoj legeblas cxe la supra ligilo.] By posting User Content to any part of the Site, you automatically grant, and you represent and warrant that you have the right to grant, to the Company an irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, fully paid, worldwide license (with the right to sublicense) to use, copy, publicly perform, publicly display, reformat, translate, excerpt (in whole or in part) and distribute such User Content for any purpose, commercial, advertising, or otherwise, on or in connection with the Site or the promotion thereof, to prepare derivative works of, or incorporate into other works, such User Content, and to grant and authorize sublicenses of the foregoing.
Sxajne Facebook rajtas uzi cxion kion uzantoj afisxas cxe la retejo iel ajn. Do kial diable mi kreus konton? It would seem that Facebook has to right to use everthing you post in any way they please. So why the hell would I create an account there?

So don't post anything that you'd feel uncomfortable with them using (and no - it's not a leap of the imagination to say text-to-speech is a public performance - it is, So is the playing of embedded videos.*If* played publicly or in public (schools, coffee shops, etc.). It makes sense that they would need to protect themselves. Every example you listed is, I think, fair and reasonable use. They have publicly stated that they will not infringe on users' rights - a statement that makes it easier to seek recourse if you feel they do.

All that aside, at some point you have to have a little faith. So much mistrust will give you ulcers, heart attacks, or ?.

People want to get in touch with you - that seems to be the main purpose of facebook - to reconnect, to stay connected. If you get an account, you don't have to use it for more than that. You don't have to write posts - though you could simply direct folks here.
