So I asked a question here about my loooks and I posted two photos of my face. I was searching something on Google now and i found my two photos there not here! It's in public which means this site isn't even safe or i don't know what to say. Please someone explain to me because i don't know anymore. Anyone can safe them and use them to catfish people and pretend it's me!
Well, been there done that.. I didn't ask a question on how do I look but somehow someone took my profile picture either from here or Facebook and used it on a site... I think you can't do shit because it's not illegal I've been told, unless they pretend it's you!
welcome to the internet. What, you tought you owned the images here?
Sorry to break it, but you don't. EVERY SINGLE image you post on FB legally belong to them and they're free to use them as they want. You agreed to it in their EULA. Supposedly it's the same with instagram too. The moment you post an image, it does by law belong to facebook.
Snapchat has a database of ALL the images you've ever sent. And you agreed to this too in their EULA. Imagine how many nudes that database contains now...
And here comes the REAL fun. Since you clicked "i accept" on the EULA, you can't do jackshit about it. The images are not yours anymore. Submitting takedowns won't do shit. taking them to court won't do shit.
If you used IMGUR to upload it, i suspect it's public. most image sites are. And public means the images are searchable!
That's what you get for being careless on the internet. Hope you learned your lesson.
Oh and for the record, i'm afaid GaG can't do much about it. Seeing as they only use code to display the images. All images seen here are hosted off site, from where you got the link to the image.
What are you so surprised about? You posted it in the Internet, meaning they're public for anyone to see. Also, this site isn't meant to share your pics, unlike FB, so they won't spend money on ways to keep your pics safe.
Should have been more safer... This is what you should have done... You should have uploaded the photo on imgur or similar sites. Copy the link off from imgur and copy it here. Then when ur all done getting answers, delete the photo on imgur so that if it shows up on google images the photo won't show up when opened..
But you said 'found my two photos there not here!'... You mean your photos aren't sourced from Gag? Perhaps someone downloaded your photo and uploaded somewhere. Damnnn
Google is simply a search engine, ergo, you search and it links you to sites that contain content you are searching for. That's why your facebook profile appears on google. That's why EVERYTHING appears on google.
It was an unwise question on your part and I have always asked girls NOT post pictures here if you do not want them to be public all over the internet... Specially teenagers whose parents don't even know. You are public now. There is no way back. And this is only the beginning. Trust me.
I'm sorry to hear this happened to you. GirlsAskGuys strives to protect all of our users, but unfortunately, this is still the internet so appropriate precautions should still be taken if you do not want your pictures to be anywhere online. If this is a concern of yours, I would recommend not posting any more photos in the future.
However, if you do wish to upload an image, you can use tinypic or imgur then when you are ready to take it down, you can typically remove the images from those sites and then the pictures should no longer appear here on GaG.
You put it online of course it ends up on google, you should know that.
The internet is not a safe place, which is why I don't upload my pictures (especially of my face). Facebook is also not safe, and can use your images.
Of course anyone can save them. What did you think? Anything you post online can be there forever and people can take it and put it up on other sites. You should never post pictures of you that you aren't ok with being out there forever on any random site. You never know what other people will do with your pictures.
