Peter,

You are right.and truly we are spoiled for choice

It is very satisfying to observe that some entries from professional
photographers are nowadays explicitly stating their CC-BY-SA licences fo
rCommons do not enable their copyrighted works to be uploaded to Facebook
(and by implication to similar sites).

eg: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Cccefalon/fb

And yet, I see that the Wikimedia volunteers on Facebook blissfully
uploading "Pictures of the day" ignorant of all the legalese

eg:
