Ok I don't post photos to Facebook but in English what about a link to a personal website or Flickr page? Would they "own" that too?

I just heard on the news that they do not own or license content and will delete everything once somebody terminates their account. Looks like the blogger's won, even though the Terms Of Use have yet to be changed.
