I never signed up for an account with them in the first place. My mother still can't understand my response when I tell her that I shouldn't be able to go look at my brother's photos on FB. I tell her that if I can see them without being his FB 'friend', then there's something wrong.
I had one when it was the 'cool thing'. I deleted that account. 

Signed back up when I was with my ex because she was always on there. Broke up with her, I deleted that account.

Found G+ and figured Google already had all my info, so what the hey! 
You should be able to see his pictures if he doesn't care enough to protect them. I have many things public on the net.. and some things that aren't.

Now, if he DID protect them and FB STILL let you see them - which wouldn't surprise me - they suck in SO many ways - THAT'S a problem.
that's my point, if he hasn't bothered about sorting out his privacy settings, then there's something wrong
I check my settings often and I still somehow missed this announcement. Thank you for posting the article!
