It may have been said but I wonder if FB will write in their TOS that they have rights to your content if you use this service. Another bad idea imo.

No it isn't. You just opt out. Simple as that. No need to be overly dramatic. There is enough of that in the world already.

Does anyone really want this feature? I was horrified when G+ sync'd my images automatically and its a ghost town.

Doing this on Facebook will scare the crap out of me.

I won't be using this. It will:
  • destroy battery life
  • use unnecessary data which costs me money
  • I don't get any control about when/where it happens
  • Hell, I probably don't even know when it happens
  • gives Facebook access (+/- ownership ) to ALL my photos, not only the ones I have consented to.

That's weird. The Google+ app never did any such thing on my iPhone (automatically, that is - the option is available if I wanted to use it).

I am happy that Facebook is trying to continue inovating with regard to user experience, but this is a BAD idea! No thank you!

TechCrunch has more on how it works:
Facebook's support site has much more about Photo Sync, as well. Facebook is using background uploads within the Facebook iOS app to move the photos, not anything special with location APIs or Apple's iOS 6 Facebook integration.

The app is very clear that all photos uploaded automatically are marked as private and cannot be viewed by others until specifically shared by the user. Users get 2 GB of complimentary photo storage.

So, Facebook wants our dick pics?

Facebook is Apple's friend. Their young CEO looked up to Steve and wants to be just like him. Facebook and Apple can make lots of money together. Facebook knows how to monetize identity and to make users give up personal information. Apple knows how to take money from its partners. It is a marriage made in heaven.

Facebook and Apple hit a roadblock a few years ago under Jobs. HP TouchPad and iOS 4.

Sounds like it. Storing them for later in case any of it's users become famous or run for political office.

My pictures are my pictures. If I want any of them uploaded to facebooks servers to be made public, I'll do so under my own will.

Or...you could just not social network? Phones do have text messaging, picture messaging and email. So you can either put up with Facebook since everyone knows they dont care, you can mosey over to Google+ or you could just go outside and do something, click the "I do not want to participate or use this feature" or similar named area and get on with your life.

No thank you. Like I'm going to trust Facebook with all my photos. Sure they're 'Private' for now, until they change their T&C's.

Hell no!

So I take pictures today, for personal use...and FB decides to "update" their "security" settings next month and all of a sudden all my pics become public? NO WAY! I've already been burned by FB security setting changes twice. Not going to play the fool a 3rd time.

Prediction #2 Some couples are going to end up divorced because of the auto upload

Prediction #3 Some people will lose their jobs because of the the auto upload
