If it's on the internet, then it has to be true ... right?!

Not really, especially when it comes to hoaxes on Facebook, pertaining to Facebook.

This status has gone viral, with thousands of Facebook users copy and pasting it into their status updates. And for what? Only to annoy those who know their stuff will never be shared by Facebook.

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 If you do not publish a statement at least once it will be tactically allowing the use of your photos, as well as the information contained in the profile status updates.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

When you joined Facebook, you agreed to their terms of use, which at the top blatantly says, “you own all of the content and information you post on Facebook, and you can control how it is shared through your privacy and application settings."

This hoax has been around for quite some time and has never been true.

What should you do when you see a friend copy and paste this in their status? Unfriend them! Just kidding. But you should ridicule them for believing everything they read.
