Yet again people are sharing a hoax post on Facebook about retaining control over things that you share on Facebook – we see these spam posts time and time again and still people are sharing. And frankly its just annoying.
Facebook Hoax About Retaining Control
This one isn’t any different that the ones before.
Basically it says Deadline tomorrow – well its already been floating around for at least a week so that deadline has passed if you are still sharing this Facebook Spam.
Here is the text from the offending Facebook Post.
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 If you do not publish a statement at least once it will be tactically allowing the use of your photos, as well as the information contained in the profile status updates.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 to be on the safe side.
Its just not true, it is a hoax. Who Channel 13 news are I have no idea. I’d rather not even search it for fear of catching some virus so I will leave it at that.
We have seen so many types of this hoax and other scam on Facebook its just crazy that people are still fooled into sharing these posts.
Facebook Gold Membership – also still doing the rounds
And it goes on and on……. This is just another Facebook hoax and does nothing but amuse the poster and confirm that Facebook users do not listen.
How do we know its not true ?
For a start – do you really think a post on your wall is going to stop Facebook doing anything. You can still protect your posts as you have always done.
Facebook even posted a statement saying this was not true
