Don't Fall For That Facebook Status You Saw Everywhere

September 29, 2015 by Ella Cajayon
shefinds | Style

Yesterday afternoon, the Facebook server was down for a 40-minute time period. While this affected most of us, once we were able to log back on, all of a sudden the same Facebook statuses kept appearing. These statuses were in regards to an article being thrown around the Internet informing people how to protect their content on Facebook, because according this article, Facebook could take our content at any given moment and call it their own.

The article states: “In response to the new Facebook guidelines, I hereby declare that my copyright is attached to all of my personal details, illustrations, comics, paintings, professional photos, and videos, etc. (as a result of the Berner Convention). For commercial use of the above my written consent is needed at all times!”

Well, apparently the year is 2007 because this my friends is another Facebook hoax. So do not fret, everything will be okay. Just don’t believe what this article is proclaiming. Facebook absolutely does not own our posts. Their privacy policy only states that depending on our privacy and application settings, they may have the right to distribute and share our content. But this is not a given, which is what the Facebook hoax article claims.

Also fun fact, the “Berner Convention” that this Facebook hoax speaks of doesn’t even exist. So, cool story bro… tell it again. Moral of the story is we will be a-okay, so keep calm and Facebook on!
