Oh yes, it is true. Did you read your own quotation:

For content that is covered by intellectual property rights, like photos and videos (IP content), you specifically give us the following permission, subject to your privacy and application settings: you grant us a non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with Facebook (IP License). This IP License ends when you delete your IP content or your account unless your content has been shared with others, and they have not deleted it.
Of course you don't hand over the copyrights as such. That is - here in
Germany at least - impossible. But you give facebook all rights to use
your content, your music! And not only that: You give facebook ALSO the
right to give your contant to any 3rd party.

And not only that: Of course the license ends when you delete your IP-
content. But everything at the 3rd party stays! Haha - you know what that

Of course, we can go into more detail - and then it becomes even more

Granted, I'd bet that there are customer support people at FB that misread this also but in reality they don't actually own your song if you post it there, to state it in plain terms.
"only a license" ... which in fact never ends. What more could they
take away?

In contrast to your statement most facebook members are just infinitely
naive regarding the exploitation of their works. This fact is only relativised
by the fact that most works are just on a level where a professional
utilization is very improbable.
free mp3s + info: songs and weird stuff:
