Don't Fall For That Facebook Status You Saw Everywhere
September 29, 2015
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!”
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!
