Deadline tomorrow!

You friend just posted what appears to be a warning of some kind and advises you to take heed.

The post goes on to say…

Everything you’ve ever posted becomes public from tomorrow.

Even messages that have been deleted or the photos not allowed.

It costs nothing for a simple copy and paste, better safe than sorry.

Channel 13 News talked about the change in Facebook’s privacy policy.

Your friend then shares what you are supposed to share in your next post. 

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).

As if that is not enough, your friend reminds you of Facebook’s status as a company. 

NOTE: Facebook is now a public entity. All members must post a note like this.

Then instructs you what to do next. 

If you prefer, you can copy and paste this version.

If you do not publish a statement at least once it will be technically allowing the use of your photos, as well as the information contained in the profile status updates.

If you see a message like this you can either ignore it, or tell you friend they are full of shit.

Okay, maybe that last piece of advice is a bit harsh. But you can remind them that the moment they signed up for Facebook or any social media company they agreed to abide by that networks terms and conditions. So, if your friends don’t want their information shared they shouldn’t post it to any social platform or online bulletin board or anyway where the public could use it.
