Can I use my photos in a portfolio if they’re on Facebook?

Hi, I am going to make a portfolio of my photography — however some of the photos I have already put on Facebook. Am I still allowed to use those photos in my portfolio? Please help as I don’t want to break any laws. Thank you!

Yes. If you took the photos then you own the copyright and you can use them in your portfolio regardless of where else you have displayed them. Posting on Facebook does not restrict usage elsewhere.
