Comment (by arma):

 I spoke to a person in Facebook legal who said that Facebook strips
 metadata from uploaded media (yay), but that they quietly store it
 separately in case somebody asks them for it (boo).

 So, yes, having Tor Browser do it on the user side would be yet another
 good case of having the user enforce their own safety through technical
 means, rather than hoping (policy means) that some third party does the
 right thing.
