Stop Being a Facebook Idiot (You Know Who You Are)
Have you seen this Facebook post recently? "Deadline tomorrow !!! Everything you’ve ever posted becomes public from tomorrow on" And to make sure it doesn't become public all you have to do is this one simple thing:
Copy and paste this into your page...don't share it, you most copy and paste..
“I do not give Facebook or any entities associated with Facebook permission to use my pictures, information, messages or posts, both past and future. With this statement, I give notice to Facebook it is strictly forbidden to disclose, copy, distribute, or take any other action against me based on this profile and/or its contents. The content of this profile is private and confidential information. The violation of privacy can be punished by law (UCC 1-308- 1 1 308-103 and the Rome Statute). NOTE: Facebook is now a public entity. All members must post a note like this. If you prefer, you can copy and paste this version. If you do not publish a statement at least once it will be tactically allowing the use of your photos, as well as the information contained in the profile status updates. DO NOT SHARE. Copy and paste”
That's it now you're completely safe form having all you Facebook info and posts become public info.
This is a hoax that was started four years ago and for some reason every year or so, it gets started on Facebook and people for some reason or other fall for it.
I’ve even seen some of my close friends or family post it and and comment, “Well Better safe than sorry”….Really..it doesn’t work that way… I would encourage you to read their links and documentation, because let’s face it, you didn’t read it when you signed up right?
Basically is say that when you sign up for a Facebook account, you are giving them the right to use your info however see fit. Here’s the thing…you, you can’t retroactively change that agreement or any agreement just by posting a status update. If that were the case you would never need a contract for anything, because it would take to change it, is a status update on Facebook…. Now see how silly that sounds when you see it in black and white?
I'm not a big believer in Snopes.com any more after finding out that they accept payments to change stories to be more true towards whomever is paying them, but here is what they had to say.
So help do your part, to make sure this little hoax doesn't rear it's ugly head agin next year
