Facebook message doing the rounds again

So, you may have seen this on a friends wall recently or even on your own.

As of November 27, 2013 at 14:28 GMT, I do not give Facebook or any entities associated with Facebook permission to use my pictures, information, or posts, both past and future. By this statement, I give notice to Facebook it is strictly forbidden to disclose, copy, distribute, or take any other action against me based on this profile and/or its contents. The content of this profile is private and confidential information. The violation of privacy can be punished by law (UCC 1-308- 1 1 308-103 and the Rome Statute). 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 If you do not publish a statement at least once it will be tactically allowing the use of your photos, as well as the information contained in the profile status updates.

Unfortunately, as a good friend of mine who writes for Forbes states in his post http://www.forbes.com/sites/davidthier/2012/11/26/why-you-cant-protect-your-facebook-privacy-with-a-wall-post/

 

You can’t really get around or protect yourself by simply posting the above statement to your wall.

It’s all just a big waste of time and doesn’t help you in the slightest. So as with the thing circling about someone winning the lottery and giving some lucky Liker (see what I did there) $10,000. It’s just a stupid viral thing.
