Websites ‘keeping deleted photos’

User photographs can still be found on many social networking sites even after people have deleted them, Cambridge University researchers have said.

They put photos on 16 popular websites – noting the web addresses where the images were stored – and deleted them.

The team said it was able to find them on seven sites – including Facebook – using the direct addresses, even after the photos appeared to have gone.
