A Facebook hoax that we all saw back in 2012 and should know better than to post on our timelines has, nevertheless, tricked some of our dumber acquaintances again. The hoax claims that if you post a status with some legal-sounding language, Facebook can't claim ownership of any content you post on their site. That's why you've seen this status everywhere:


As of (date), I do not give Facebook or any entities associated with Facebook permission to use my pictures, information, or posts, both past and future. By this statement I give notice to Facebook it is strictly forbidden to disclose, copy, distribute or take any other action against me based on this profile is private and confidential information. The violation of privacy can be punished by law (UCC 1-308-11 308-103 and 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 If you do not publish this statement at least once it will be tactically allowing the use of your photos, as well as information contained in the profile status updates. DO NOT SHARE you MUST copy and paste to make this I will leave a comment so it will be easier to copy and paste!!!
