Though Facebook providing enough privacy for its users but we too need to take some more care about protecting our photos from thefts in Facebook. The reason behind this is, nowadays large number of crimes are happening due to the theft of photos from Facebook. The best thing about sharing a photo is to keep all the privacy and security settings in a strict manner, hence nowadays many people opening a fake Facebook account by using other Facebook users photos and using that account for lot of illegal things.
The easier way to protect our Facebook photos and images is choosing the album privacy setting as ‘friends only’. But some people may have huge number of friends, and even some of their friends in Facebook are not even known to them, for this making a watermark over the image is the only way to protect others using our images for unwanted things.
While we are talking about this one can rise a question that whether this will stop spammers and other awful persons from using our photos or images from Facebook? The only answer to that question is that it will not halt them from the spammers, awful persons from using the images or photos but one thing we can able to do is halting to some span.
Normally spammers need bulk allowance of images downloaded which are not having watermarks and using them for their personal works as they not needed to re-editing your images. By using this method we can halt those spammers from using images to some limit.
