no thanks

can you imagine the amount of naked girlfriend pics the Facebook nerds are hoping to salivate over...yeah, marked Private against the general public...but the Facebook nerds get to have their jollies over your pics of your girlfriend. Facebook staff see anything...private or not.

Sure,

and I have a bridge for sale in Alaska

That will last UNTIL the next time Facebook does another arbitrary privacy settings "update".

I have a Facebook account under an assumed name. Can I post fake pictures to my fake account?

I don't get many hits from anyone, since they don't know my "cover name"
I wonder if I am taking this privacy thing too far?

Not bad, you have unlimited size and you can see the pics anywhere there is internet. iCloud needs to expand more, same could be said of about all the latest features Apple has been coming out w/ these last 2 years.

If I had a decent enough upload speed I would use features like this, probably more with my dropbox, but still. One day

Facebook devs should be focusing on making the app not suck on iOS and Android first.

Does facebook own these too? I've been looking for a more autonomous way to pass up my right to privacy.

If the title of this article is "Google Rolling Out New iOS Data Sync Feature - to upload all your browsing activities to Google's server, well the data is private!", what will be your reaction?

Google+ also has this feature.
Also they are low-res (instead of full-res in iCloud Photo Stream) and anyone got the link of your photo can probably share it to the world.

Or if it were "Apple rolling out new IOS data sync feature to upload...to Icloud"?

So scary....

Guys, just turn it off on your phones and wait for the many awesome leaked "hacked account" pictures rolling in.

Some excellent material is awaiting us!

The first thing I did when I got my iPhone was to goto Settings/General/Restrictions/Privacy and set Facebook and Twitter to "Don't allow changes," even while I don't have Facebook or Twitter installed.

I just don't trust them!

Yeah, sure, until Facebook rolls out the next update that "fixes" that for everyone.

Face it, most people don't have the same trust issues with Apple that they do with Google -- or Facebook.

Also, what's up with the pedantic capitalization?

Totally agree. At least Google works in a calcuated fashion and you know what kind of shennanigans to expect. Facebook is like bumbling idiot who inherited a trust fund.

Google+ has this feature enabled ON by default, and it uploaded all of my (kinda private) photos. I was floored!!! Sounds like Facebook has this featured turned OFF by default, which is the right way.

Regardless, I will never turn on such a feature.

No thanks. I really wish Facebook would just make it easier to manage my existing photos instead of rolling out dumb features like this. The photo management platform is garbage and really needs a complete overhaul. It's such a pain in the ass to organize anything.
