Default Do you post pics on Facebook? If so, read this...

In short, all of the content youíve ever uploaded on Facebook can be used, modified or even sublicensed by Facebook in every possible way - even if you quit the service.

The TOS says the following:

You hereby grant Facebook an irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, fully paid, worldwide license (with the right to sublicense) to (a) use, copy, publish, stream, store, retain, publicly perform or display, transmit, scan, reformat, modify, edit, frame, translate, excerpt, adapt, create derivative works and distribute (through multiple tiers), any User Content you (i) Post on or in connection with the Facebook Service or the promotion thereof subject only to your privacy settings or (ii) enable a user to Post, including by offering a Share Link on your website and (b) to use your name, likeness and image for any purpose, including commercial or advertising, each of (a) and (b) on or in connection with the Facebook Service or the promotion thereof.
If I'm reading that correctly, then....

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.
