Facebook Privacy Hoax Has Gone Viral…Again
You've probably seen in your timeline that Facebook is going to make all of your private pictures public tomorrow, October 19th 2016. Could that possibly be true? Nope.
The Facebook privacy hoax looks something like this -
According to Snopes.com, this has been making the rounds on Facebook since late in 2012.
CBSnews.com sites an official statement from Facebook “This is false. Anyone who uses Facebook owns and controls the content and information they post, as stated in our terms,” Facebook stated. “They control how that content and information is shared. That is our policy, and it always has been.”
Also, think about this. the post says to copy and paste. Why not just share it? that's because if people just shared it, it could be tracked back to the original person who posted it. Also, if you copy and paste it, it's basically a sneaky way for it to pop up in other people's timelines. If you shared it, it would possibly be filtered out of most people's news feeds due to certain preferences set by users.
So, no, it's not true. You can take a breath now.
