Facebook Privacy and Permission Notice is a Hoax
When will it stop? The Facebook Privacy Hoax is circulating around on Facebook, again.
The reason it is circulating again is because your friends are sharing it over and over again. This past weekend, three of my Facebook friends added this notice to their status update. It says the following
From Monday, 27th June, 2016, 1528 IST, I don't give Facebook permission to use my pictures, my information or my publications, both of the past and the future, mine or those where I show up. By this statement, I give my notice to Facebook it is strictly forbidden to disclose, copy, distribute, give, sell my information, photos or take any other action against me on the basis of 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 If you do not publish a statement at least once, you have given the tacit agreement allowing the use of your photos, as well as the information contained in the updates of the state of the profile. Do not share. You have to copy.
- Red flag number 1: The notice is dated Jun 27th
- Red flag number 2: Indonesian Time. Really?
Facebook issued an official statement rebuking the warning:
If you find your friends are posting the fake privacy update notice, tell them to STOP IT! There is no privacy update. It is a hoax.
