What is the YA policy on using the facebook logo in avatars?

Many users have the facebook logo in their avatars. Is that avatar coming from facebook and is Yahoo allowing people to display the copyrighted facebook logo?

    Yes, that logo is bestowed directly on the user’s photographic avatar for the purpose of sharing with Yahoo! Answers, and the photo is the user’s facebook profile pic. This is a fairly recent innovation (dating back about 3 months or so). It is a partnership agreement between Yahoo! and Facebook to encourage integration of Answers with social networking for the mutual benefit of both corporations and the greater enjoyment of those users who choose to take advantage of the link-up. YA users get to see this form of advertising for Facebook, while Facebook users get to see their friends’ YA stream on their Facebook page.
