Now it’s official.  Privacy notices from Facebook are  hoax.

It may look something like this:

Anyone who uses Facebook owns and controls the content and information they post, as stated in our terms

Anyone who uses Facebook owns and controls the content and information they post, as stated in our terms

Facebook has just released the entry price of $5.99 to keep your Facebook subscription as private. If you paste this message on your page, it will be offered free (paste not share) if not tomorrow, all your posts can become public.

And there are other messages.

Those “notices” urges Facebook users to copy and paste it into their own statuses, the message is proliferating people’s Facebook news feeds. And it’s not the first time this has happened.

“Ignore them”- said Mark Zuckerberg

“Facebook isn’t interested in owning anything you post. Everything you post on Facebook — status updates, pictures, videos, bogus Facebook “privacy notices” — is yours. Anyone who uses Facebook owns and controls the content and information they post, as stated in our terms. They control how that content and information is shared. That is main Facebook policy.

You’re also not preventing Facebook from “violating your privacy” when you repost a chain message. When you first signed up to use Facebook, you agreed to the company’s Terms of Service, which include itsy privacy policy. And while Facebook at times updates its Terms of Service, your agreement to those updated terms is implicit.

You also agreed to give Facebook  “a non-exclusive, transferable, royalty-free, worldwide license to use any IP content that you post on or in connection with Facebook.  This means Facebook can use anything you post on the website to promote itself.

The “privacy notice” you might see on Facebook is a hoax.
