Facebook is a platform created to share users content... then the users complain that the content is shared?
When Google uploads its logo to Facebook, do you really think it reasonably expects to give Facebook and any of its sub-licensees the right to use the logo for anything they want and in any way they want? If you do, you might need a reality check.
There is a world of a difference between the limited right to distribute the uploaded image on their site and reuse elsewhere and by other entities (such as modification and creation of derivative works). You obviously do not own any valuable intellectual property assets (like my company does).
Just about every forum including this one has a TOS allowing them to use the content you post on it.
I've never seen a forum with ToS like that. But even if there was a forum with such ToS, I don't see any point in even mentioning it here.
In the grand scheme of things that I have to worry about, that one is pretty far down the list.
If your logo and product name are worth less than $100,000, then I can say I understand that.
