The new Facebook/Meta rule starts tomorrow where they can use your photos. Don’t forget the deadline is today! This could be used in lawsuits against you. Everything you’ve ever posted will be treated as posted today – even messages that have been deleted.
I DO NOT ALLOW Facebook/Meta or any other Facebook/Meta related person or entity to use my photos, information, or messages, both in the past and in the future.
I’m not giving Facebook/Meta permission to share my information posted on their website. PHOTOS, CURRENT or PAST, PUBLICATION, PHONE NUMBER OR POST… Absolutely nothing can be used in any form without my explicit written permission.
You may have seen that very message pop up — perhaps time and time again — in your Facebook feed. The message has been making the rounds on the social network. It encourages people to copy and paste the text and post it on their own walls if they want to be placed “under new Facebook/Meta rules.”
It’s a frightful message and those worried that Facebook will own their photos or other media are posting it — unaware that it is a hoax. Here’s the truth: Facebook doesn’t own your media and there is no such thing as claimed in the viral message.
This isn’t the first time a message like this has popped up on Facebook. A similar message made the rounds in June and a few years ago as well.
Don’t bother copying, pasting, and posting. It was a hoax before and is still a hoax now.
