  1. Doesn’t Facebook have something in their terms about being granted an unconditional license to use anything you post? So if you’re adding your art, FB could use it for any purpose they wish.
    Maybe they’ve relaxed that clause, but not likely given their dominance in the social networking market.

  2. I agree with Mike H, you should watch Facebook with your art. It may be a good place for updates and your fans to follow (which I’m doing now) but it’s not really cut out to be a portfolio type of site. I would refrain or put on a big watermark or something.

  3. Good call, Mike and Matt. I had been under the impression that Facebook had updated their terms to state that rights stay with those who post the work, but I looked into it and it seems to be a foggy matter. So until I find the clause that states what I want to see, the art has been removed. I appreciate the comments, guys, thanks for the heads-up.

  4. It’s still a great way to build the fan base, and for those of us already on Facebook, it’s a nice addition to the flow of information.

  5. PKayne, I’ve looked into Twitter a few times and I’m still trying to figure out if I have enough interesting stuff on the go to keep it updated. Currently I’m drinking a cup of coffee which is hardly newsworthy :) From a user (and creative) standpoint, I’d be interested in knowing how you feel about it.
