Viral Privacy control post is a hoax says Facebook


For last few days many Facebook users are copy pasting a post on their wall saying that all their posts and photos will go public. The matter posted on Facebook is as follows :

“All your posts can become public tomorrow . Even the messages that have been deleted or the photos not allowed. After all, it does not cost anything for a simple copy and paste.
Channel 13 News was just talking about this change in FB’s privacy policy. Better safe than sorry. I do not give FB or any entities associated with Facebook permission to use my pictures, information, messages or posts, both past and future. By 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 If you do not publish a statement at least once it will be tactically allowing the use of your photos, as well as the information contained in the profile status updates.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. You MUST copy and paste”

“कल 30 जून से हमारे सारे पोस्ट सार्वजनिक हो जायेंगे। यहां तक की आपके हटाये गये मैसेज और फोटोस भी।आखिरकार एक कॉपी पेस्ट से कौन सा खर्च होने वाला है। चैनल 13 ने फेसबुक के इस नीतिगत बदलाव के बारे में चर्चा की है। मैं फेसबुक या उससे जुड़े किसी भी सोशल प्लेटफार्म को ये अधिकार नहीं देता कि वो मेरे प्रोफाइल से भूत या भविष्य की ऐसी कोई भी जानकारी,तस्वीरें या टिप्पणीयों को सार्वजनिक करें या उसका दुरूपयोग करें। मेरे प्रोफाइल के सारे दस्तावेज लोकनिकाय है। सभी व्यक्ति ऐसा एक नोट अपनी फेसबुक की दीवार पर चस्पा करें। इसे शेयर मत कीजिएगा। मेरी बात को प्राथमिकता दे रहे हैं तो कॉपी कीजिए और अपनी दीवार पे लगाइए। अगर आप ऐसा नहीं करते हैं तो आपके प्रोफाइल की सारी जानकारियों का,फोटोस का इस्तेमाल करने का अधिकार सार्वजानिक होजाएगा। शेयर मत कीजिएगा।कॉपी कीजिए और पेस्ट कर दीजिये।”

Facebook has clarified that it is a hoax. In fact, that post is believed to have surfaced back in 2012. Facebook in it’s Official Statement said that,

“You may have seen a post telling you to copy and paste a notice to retain control over things you share on Facebook. Don’t believe it. Our terms say clearly: You own all of the content and information you post on Facebook, and you can control how it’s shared through your privacy and application setting. That’s how it works, and this hasn’t changed.

You can visit Privacy Basics to find out more about who sees what you share on Facebook and other topics.

You can also read the Data Policy to find out what information we collect and how it is used and shared. We want you to be informed and in control of your experience on Facebook.”
