Urban Legend of the Facebook Privacy Notice


*PRIVACY NOTICE: Warning--any person and/or institution and/or Agent and/or Agency of any governmental structure including but not limited to the United States Federal Government also using or monitoring/using this website or any of its associated websites, you do NOT have my permission to utilize any of my profile information nor any of the content contained herein including, but not limited to... my photos, and/ or the comments made about my photo`s or any other "picture" art posted on my profile. You are hereby notified that you are strictly prohibited from disclosing, copying, distributing, disseminating, or taking any other action against me with regard to this profile and the contents herein. The foregoing prohibitions also apply to your employee(s), agent(s), student(s) or any personnel under your direction or control. The contents of this profile are private and legally privileged and confidential information, and the violation of my personal privacy is punishable by law. UCC 1-103 1-308 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED WITHOUT PREJUDICE

It is recommended that other members post a similar notice to this or you may copy and paste this one. Thank you. This is now a publicly traded site, Protect Yourself!

 So, this (or similar versions) has been showing up on Facebook. A little notice that people believe will protect themselves... from what? I am not sure. Posting something like this will not stop any entity from utilizing comments or your profile information if you have given permission to the public to view.

  • It has no bearing on the fact that Facebook is now publicly traded.
  • You are bound by the Facebook terms and conditions and cannot set your OWN terms and conditions. 
  • Uniform Commerical Code 1-103 1-308 has nothing do do with social networking or online privacy.
Bottom line? Don't waste your mouseclicks. This is an Facebook hoax at its best. ☺
