UCC 1-308-11 308-103: Just another Facebook Privacy hoax

Saw my FB friends recently posting a “cut-and-pasted” privacy notice, supposedly warning Facebook not to use personal information without the account owner’s permission, or else… Now what?

fb-hoaxSadly, this is just another hoax, and many have failed to notice. First, how many did actually read the Facebook terms of use and privacy policy when they signed up for an FB account? I bet many of us didn’t bother at all – including me.

A quick googling of the terms “UCC 1-308-11 308-103” and “Rome statute” should give everyone a good idea what these are. Go check it out yourself.

Facebook being a “public entity?” Never heard Mark Zuckerberg selling Facebook to the government, or any news on the US federal government taking over Facebook. Though it may sound fun to hear someone addressing “Dir. Zuckerberg of the Facebook State Bureau.”

Don’t fall to this crap.

It will be great to see Facebook respect everyone’s personal information and privacy, but its wishful thinking. Best way to avoid? Stay away from Facebook, or any other social media site.

Happy new year everyone!

As of January 5th, 2015 at 12:00 pm Manila time. I do NOT give Facebook or any entitles associated with Facebook permission to use my pictures, information, or post, both from the past, in the present, or in the 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 is private and confidential information. The violation of privacy can be punished by law (UCC 1-308-11 308-103 and 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 If you prefer, you can copy and paste this version if you do not publish the statement at least once it will be tactically allowing the use of your photos, as well as information contained in the profile status updates.

DO NOT SHARE you MUST copy and paste this. I will leave a comment so it will be easier to copy and paste!!!I do NOT give Facebook or any entitles associated with Facebook permission to use my pictures, information, or post, both from the past, in the present, or in the future.
