How to Get Around Lightbox in Facebook

Recently, Facebook took a better measure to protect people’s photos by incorporating Lightbox the way that Flickr does. This is a step in the right direction for many photographers, yes? Sure. But try this: click on a photo of some sort and wait for it to come up in Lightbox. Then hit refresh. I’m using Firefox, and it took me back to the old Facebook photo page that allowed me to pull the image from the site if I wanted to.

So photographers: does this mean that you’re just going to work on building your pageviews on Flickr instead?
