& Your Copyright
First of all, it's important to know the terms
you are working with - If you don't want people
using your travel photos, Facebook, and pretty
well all Social Networking sites, may not be
for you. Social Networking is all about sharing.
You can control who sees what, but it sort of
defeats the purpose and Facebook says that you
grant them a royalty-free license to use it.
The license ceases when you delete the content.
Facebook wants a single authoritative
source of information.
They want to avoid becoming another search engine
with a million people listing the same thing.
Only One authoritative source can create a Page

an unauthorized Page or violate our Terms in
any way, your Facebook account may be disabled".
If you are new to Facebook, you
can choose "To create a page for a celebrity,
band or business".
This option will require an email - it will
create a profile for that email and a Page
for the business within that profile. This is
the only legal way of creating a product. Do
not create a profile for your product - It
may get your entire account deleted.
Pages are distinct entities
from your profile - You can set the Page
