My favorite feature on Tumblr is getting notifications for my inbox, but ever since I joined another (much larger) blog, I’ve been getting notifications on a daily basis. (Mostly for the other blog, of course.) It’s lame because I either have to turn off the notifications completely…or continually get my hopes up everyday. You see, it’s a lose-lose situation for me. To make it worse, people don’t even ask clever questions or submit anything substantial.
you guys should be all set now. enjoy. ^_^
Ah! Thank you very much on your generosity!
However I would like to say that the amount was unnecessarily too much and I hope you aren’t in any financial trouble. We’ll make sure your donation and everyone else’s contributions are worth it. At leastyou can brag about being our second highest contributor of Fuck Yeah TF2!
EDIT: OH SHIT, YOU WORK AT TUMBLR? THANK YOU SO MUCH! I feel so stupid right now, LOL.

From Steve Rosenbaum:
Google’s terms and conditions, buried in tiny print that most users will miss, gives them the right to take control of your content.
“By submitting, posting or displaying the content you give Google a perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, adapt, modify, translate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute any Content which you submit, post or display on or through, the Services. You agree that this license includes a right for Google to make such Content available to other companies, organizations or individuals with whom Google has relationships for the provision of syndicated services, and to use such Content in connection with the provision of those services.”
The key terms here are Perpetual, Royalty-Free - and most disturbingly - Adapt and Modify.
This means that if you’ve taken pictures of a sunset, or fireworks, or your children playing with a toy - or anything - Google has the right to grab those images, edit them, publishing them, and re-sell them.
If you think the answer is simply that you won’t put any pictures on your G+ page, think again. Google REQUIRES you to link your Picasa account to your G+ account, and therefore requires you to license your Picasa to them under their Royalty-Free contract.
Well wtf. GOOGLE+ I AM NOT GONNA USE YOU THAT OFTEN. K.
FACEBOOK > GOOGLE+
Let’s look at Facebook.For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, like photos and videos (IP content), you specifically give us the following permission, subject to your privacy and application settings: you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with Facebook (IP License). This IP License ends when you delete your IP content or your account unless your content has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it. (source)

And I crossed out the “Facebook > Google+” up above because Facebook sucks lol.
