Haha! But then once Facebook finds the G+ symbol when it tries to profit from the user, that user's icon would be deemed to be in violation of FB's policies...

What is the role of chief privacy officer at a company that says, "We own your data as soon as you hit submit?" Facebook doesn't think in terms of individual privacy, or perhaps can't afford to think in terms of it.

re: Facebook Says User Data Is Price Of Admission
I've been backing away from FB for two years now. Just feeling more and more like I'm a pawn in their game. Using my personal content to sell ads and facial recognition to help people find and tag me, which in turn will create data to sell against more ads? The shark has been jumped. The people I want to find pictures of me have no problem doing it because they're MY FRIENDS. It doesn't need to be suggested to them. I'll put up with these tactics from Google because Google provides very useful services. Facebook does not.

Friends, in the meaningful sense of the word, don't advertise to each other.

So if Facebook users change their profile pics to be icons, or offensive images, or images containing profanity, it could make their advertising quite interesting.

The problem with Facebook - as it has struggled to monetize its business - is that it just doesn't care about the rights of their users. Facebook is all too happy to help their advertisers subvert the pictures and other information of Facebook users to help sell products to other people. "Hey folks, Damien is having a blast with our product and YOU should too!. See him in action here."

Seems like stating the obvious, but perhaps it puts them in a better legally defensible position against complaints.
