Don’t Panic, This Facebook Warning is a Hoax
I keep seeing this post on my Facebook news feed and many people seem to be panicked about it. You shouldn't be.
This crazy thing has actually been around for several years and the last few days it's being shared like wildfire. Here's what it says:
No, Facebook isn't going to make all your posts public. Their terms of service still apply to your account, even if you copied and pasted the above and put it out there. This is directly from that Facebook terms of service page: "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."
Snopes updated the fact this whole thing is a hoax last Friday. Perhaps that's why this crazy thing has reared its ugly head again. Nope, it's not real so stop worrying about this and focus on something more important, like whether your Cubs will win tonight.
