How to Use Stock Photos on Facebook

Sharing images on Facebook is a practice as old as time itself, mastered from immemorial ages with fluffy cats and cute dogs, as far as 2004 actually, but it seems like forever, doesn't it?But not all images are made the same. Some are your own work, those can be shared at your discretion and you should also remember that you own the copyright on these images so if you see them used afterwards in anyway you didn't agree to you should take action.
