Re: I don't really mind if the image is shared...

....I just don't want it used commercially, w/o my permission/compensation. I have read of FB doing this before w/o permission and then refusing compensation after the fact.

That said, someone likes your photo enough to post it, tread gently on them. By all means make 'em give you a photo credit, but beyond that, unless it's taking food off your table, accept the ego stroke graciously and move on.

There is simply too much beauty in the world to photograph it all, but I'm trying.
