Do you really know what you've agreed to when you post photos or chat with your friends on a social-networking site? The fine folks at SmartMoney.com took a magnifying glass to the fine print on the privacy policies of YouTube, Twitter, MySpace, Facebook, LinkedIn, Match.com, eHarmony and Google and found some results that may surprise you.

Consider: LinkedIn claims ownership of any information published in your profile, along with the right to use and commercialize it “in any way now known or in the future discovered.”

Read the whole story. It’s enlightening.
