You cannot alter your acceptance of that agreement, nor can you restrict the rights of entities who are not parties to that agreement, simply by posting a notice to your Facebook account.
If you would like to opt out of Facebook using your photos in their advertising, you’ll have to delete your account. The only way to manage your privacy settings while keeping your account is through the “Privacy Settings and Tools.”
Sites like Facebook and Google are permitted to use your likeness because you agreed to their terms of service when opting in and creating an account on the site.
“The terms of service for Facebook, Google and other internet companies include a clause that give them the right to modify their terms from time to time. When you receive an “update,” that’s what is happening — the companies are letting you know the rules have changed and, if you don’t like it, you can quit.” [Source]
