If I simply use the asc11 symbol for copyright does that give me the right to own my photo even though I took the picture, in other words if someone or some company decides to use the photo without my consent does that give me legal recourse to do something about it.

With or without © you have absolute ownership of all images you create (with exceptions if you're photographing someone else's copyrighted work ).

A registered copyright helps in establishing your ownership of specific images. More info on copyrights here: http://www.copyright.gov/

You may (or may not) have given away some or all of your rights in posting the image to some social media or photo posting sites. Carefully read the terms of use.
