Facebook: "All Your Data Are Belong to Us"

Just in case there was any doubt, Facebook pwns your data.  From the WSJ:
Goaded by a court decision, Facebook just wants to make it clear: they really can use everything they know about you – including your face.
The company announced Thursday that it was updating its privacy policies to clarify how the personal information of its more than 1 billion users gets collected and used by advertisers. In a blog post, Chief Privacy Officer Erin Egan outlined section-by-section changes to two legal documents, the Data Use Policy and the Statement of Rights and Responsibilities.
“As part of this proposed update,” Egan says, “we revised our explanation of how things like your name, profile picture and content may be used in connection with ads or commercial content to make it clear that you are granting Facebook permission for this use when you use our services.”
