The below was emailed to PM contributors. As far as I see you would have to opt out of Extended licenses on PM to exclude your images from the Social Media license.

"We get a lot of inquries for using images within social networks. Consequently, we are introducing our new "social media licence" as part of our extended licences. The additional licence fee will be 10 Euro per image.

With our new extended licence, customers can now post images within social networks like facebook, twitter, pinterest and google+:

"Social Media Licence: The content may be used and published within social networks (so called share functions, e.g. within facebook)."

If you do not agree to offer your images with an optional extended licence, you can deactivate your extended licences in the contributor portal -> "policy management". We will introduce the new social media licence not earlier than 14 days from today." (Email sent on May 31, 2013)

The social media license is connected to the EL. This means that you must explicitly disable the EL, if you don't want to see your pictures on Facebook. Unbelievable, really! How many photographers will not even notice that? Who reads reads every incoming mail from agencies? The default setting is on, that means you must explicitly opt out the EL! In the (german) Forum on Panthermedia many contributors are very upset. Are this already bad news already, it comes worse. The revenues for the smaller subs will be reduced too. >:(
