So you're the "before", but not the "after"? Are you trying to tell me... that an internet advertiser is making false claims?!

Using your picture without your consent is most likely illegal.

Hey if jared did so can you. Go on the subway diet.

Why must people write FMLs about being fat, it's not like anyone cares anyways

Well I didnt make you fat now did I? YDI for making the before lady look bad.

Sorry but this is funny :D Especially the way you discovered it.

lol 72 I was about to say that too! You WOULD know what to do 66.

Ok, that girl is not fat; she's actually quite pretty. :-P She does, however, have a cruel, dry sense of humor.

They are refering to her being black, silly!

@ Irishwildman By the by, that's the stupidest ******* acronym I've ever seen on the internet. Yeah, I think this is fake. No way they take your picture without your consent. Or is that how it is in the land of sand an drunks? If it isn't, get yourself paid, and use the money to get a personal trainer.

shutup tubbs! go eat a cookie and a hoho and wash that down with a slurpee then a hot dog cuz now ur mouths a lil cold. and you gotta have fries with a hot dog right? NO F U FATTY. have a god damn cigarette and stfu

Ryan you are a fken fat hating faggots grow the hell up you stupid fool.

So you're the "before", but not the "after"? Are you trying to tell me... that an internet advertiser is making false claims?!

I don't think it would be an fml if she was the after. Just sayin.

#189 is the best comment ever written.

Using your picture without your consent is most likely illegal.

if you upload a picture on a social networking website, you usually agree to let the website and its affiliates use the pictures you upload.

12- I don't know that that is fully true to what the situation is here. And most social networking websites don't have a warning that notes that sort of situation.

I know facebook does anything you put on facebook is free game. even after you delete it.

time to break out the contratcts.......

Unless you explicitly change your Privacy Settings to "Don't Allow", it's not illegal for third-parties to use your images, unfortunately.

Hence why I have like four pics on facebook. Then again, maybe that's five too many...

Nine001 0

So your saying 5 to many if you only have four?What are you saying you'll add another to delete it?

87- Are you sure that that's possible on, say Facebook? Because I don't think I've ever seen that on Facebook before. Although I could be wrong.

#104 - Yes, ma'am. It's buried within the fine print of your Account Settings; you have to manually ''Opt Out" of third-party advertisement(s), then click on "Submit"... It's super-sneaky, if ya ask me! =-/

omgwork 0

104 you look super stoned... you ok?

#94, It's 4 pictures plus the profile picture. 4+1=5

It may be allowed, but if they're making money off a picture someone hasn't agreed to, they either get a cut or can take it to court. If that's still legal, it shows why America sucks.

yup yup. your picture can be on a **** site from facebook too. shitty I know!

When I was about 13 some creepy foreign man used my pic as his profile pic and his cover photo had "taste you" written in sweets :/ also a bunch of girls used my pics for moviestarplanet claiming they were me (I guess it means they think I'm pretty but it's still identity theft I'm sure? Also people like to steal my artwork even though it's not the best so I sign it all now and add my url) I don't post pics of myself anymore because now I'm a few years older I know my pics can end up anywhere/ be used for anything. The creeps from 4chan like to edit minors into **** images and blackmail them/ distribute them or post about how they want to "track them" (they probably just trying to be edgy though >_>)

Maybe you can get some freebies out of it?

Unless you explicitly change your Privacy Settings to "Don't Allow", it's not illegal for third-parties to use your images, unfortunately... =-/

In other words, if you don't "Opt Out" in your Privacy Settings, you're giving Facebook and their third-party affiliates (knowingly or not) permission to use your info and images however they want in advertisements, etc. No matter how shady their practices are, it's NOT illegal on their part; they can use the info/photos however they see fit... And there's nothing legally you can do about it! =-/

Advertisers that use FB are not "3rd Party Affiliates", and they cannot use your images on sites outside Facebook. FB has the right to do what they want, but it's simply a clause to protect them from being sued in cases like when someone tags you and the photo gets shown on a wall you didn't want it on. They never sell/license your content to spammers, they photo was highly likely stolen.

This is the privacy policy on Facebook for Advertisers: We never share your personal information with our advertisers. Facebook's ad targeting is done entirely anonymously. If advertisers select demographic targeting for their ads, Facebook automatically matches those ads to the appropriate audience. Advertisers only receive anonymous data reports. For tagging photos: You control who can see the photos and videos you're tagged in that appear on your profile. Keep in mind, the owner of a photo can still share that photo with people you're not friends with. If you don't want your tag to appear, remove it from the photo or video itself. This will also prevent it from appearing on your profile. Hope that helps clear things up!

go on a diet? exercise? dont just sit here and complain. you can do it! I believe in you. I love you OP 

yeah maybe if you try the advertisement you will look like the after... PS I thought those before after things were actually the same person.

Never have been if you've seen it online. They are -always- 2 different people.
