general rule of thumb, if you don't want anybody/everybody to know, don't post it on Fakebook/Internet
I agree that people generally LOVE to make an exhibition of themselves and probably subconsciously leave things open. But honestly, when it comes to intellectual property, which is besides the point of this discussion really, my own photos (only upload iPhone pix myself) are generally too abstract in nature - certainly not stock photography material. People who make contrived decorative pictures are generally setting themselves up for it and they deserve everything they get for their lack of aesthetic judgment in the first place. Here's a bit of twisted logic - if you don't want your pictures stolen, make better pictures.
