What that essentially is saying is, even if you delete your profile as long as you or your friends have any of your shared content Facebook can do whatever they want with it! (as they own it) without giving you money or attribution.
So yeah as you say posting the Links into facebook is the best way to do it.

Sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Flickr not only make a difference to how we communicate with each other but can also have the power to help launch a career in photography. Equally, in reverse these sites do have a downside, making it difficult to really get noticed amongst the masses, with some photographer's practically giving away their work just to get published.
What are your thoughts on social networking sites? Do you use them for your photography? And do you think they have a positive or negative impact on the photographic industry?
