Nothing riles up the sheeple (def: people compared to sheep in being docile, foolish, or easily led.) quite like groundless fear-mongering.

A status update is going viral on Facebook — again- has been traced back to November 2012, and, after scrolling through recent updates, it’s back! The message warns users that Facebook is going to make everything you’ve posted public — even deleted messages and private photos — if you don’t copy and paste the message on your own wall.

Here is the update people are posting:

Deadline tommorow!
Everything you’ve ever posted becomes public from tomorrow even messages that have been deleted or the photos not allowed. It cost nothing for simple copy and paste, better safe than sorry. Channel 13news tv talked about the change in Facebook privacy. I don’t give Facebook permission to use my picture, information, messages, or post both past and future . With this statement i give notice to Facebook. It is strictly forbidden to disclose copy, distribute or take any action against me based on this profile or its content. The content of this profile is private and confidential information. The violation of privacy can be punished by law (UCC 1-308-113 118-103 AND THE ROME STATUTE)
NOTE: Facebook is now entity all member must post a note like this.
Do not share copy and paste!

There is absolutely no truth to the warnings claims.

This means that not only is Facebook not planning on making your posts public, but posting legal sounding nonsense on your timeline has ABSOLUTELY NO EFFECT on what Facebook – or anyone else – can and cannot do with your information.

How the information posted onto Facebook can be used is dictated by the terms of service that most people didn’t read when they signed up to use Facebook, and which occasionally changes throughout the years. Posting legal sounding words onto your timeline does not – in any way – alter or override those terms. You can read about how Facebook treats your information via Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities (a.k.a. Terms of Service)

  • – I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

  • that he was hiding from the British on the Temple Mount, which the British proceeded to surround when they learned that he was there. Then he is supposed to have escaped from the Temple Mount disguised as a beggar. From there he went to Gaza where he took a boat for Lebanon. Be that as it may, he stayed in Lebanon for two years and then came to Iraq in 1939, without hindrance from the French. It seems that Nuri Said wanted him to come.

  • Thanks for your advice on this blog. One thing I wish to say is that purchasing electronic products items through the Internet is nothing new. In reality, in the past 10 years alone, the market for online consumer electronics has grown a great deal. Today, you can find practically any kind of electronic system and tools on the Internet, which include cameras and also camcorders to computer elements and video gaming consoles.

  • My city just spent millions on building a new parking garage downtown.On a daily basis people complain that our downtown will remain a "ghost town" unless free (taxpayer subsidized) parking is put in place.The office to get passports, moved from the downtown to a mall in the south of the city…Why? Free parking at the mall.
