In recent days, you may have seen a Facebook “privacy notice” creep into your Facebook timeline. Your online friends published that everything you posted becomes public including photos, personal information, and so on.
The Facebook message reads:
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 If you do not publish a statement at least once, you have given the tacit agreement allowing the use of your photos, as well as the information contained in the updates of the state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.”
The privacy notice you might see getting shared on Facebook is definitely, a HOAX.
Facebook has made no such announcement regarding privacy matters.
According to a satire blog which I find it very funny, the viral post was created by some Harvard students as part of their experiment to determine the country with the lowest IQ. They will use the viral posts to see which country will share the post the most, compare the posts to the total population and get its percentage.
