My dear Family, Relatives, Friends and Earthlings - this is a Hoax! It's been in Social Media again, Facebook, since the Year 2009 with other version from  Internet rumor site Snopes.com, then it came back in 2012 and again, January of this Year. And lately, it is rounding the Site again and again, Facebook denied this rumor in their mini-post last Monday which is also in relation to NASA's Mars Announcement.

Facebook posted "While there may be water on Mars, don't believe everything you read on the internet today. Facebook is free and it always will be. And the thing about copying and pasting a legal notice is just a hoax. Stay safe out there Earthlings!"

Looking back in the year 2012, we can remember that Facebook posted almost the same announcement in regards to this hoax.

"There is a rumor circulating that Facebook is making a change related to ownership of users' information or the content they post to the site. This is false. Anyone who uses Facebook owns and controls the content and information they post, as stated in our terms. They control how that content and information is shared. That is our policy, and it always has been. Click here to learn more - www.facebook.com/policies"

Here's the Facebook Hoax circulating the Social Media site.

Now it's official! It has been published in the media. Facebook has just released the entry price: $5.99 to keep the subscription of your status to be set to "private". If you paste this message on your page, it will be offered free (paste not share) if not tomorrow, all your posts can become public. Even the messages that have been deleted or the photos not allowed. After all, it does not cost anything for a simple copy and paste .Better safe than sorry is right. Channel 13 News was just talking about this change in Facebook's privacy policy. Better safe than sorry. As of September 28th 10:56 am Eastern standard time, 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 atleast once it will be tactically allowing the use of your photos, as well as the information contained in the profile status updates. DO NOT SHARE. You MUST copy and paste

So, if you stil do not believe on Facebook's Posts/announcements, you can check the Terms of Service HERE. Please read thoroughly.

"You own all of the content and information you post on Facebook, and you can control how it is shared through your privacy and application settings."

We see some Social Media Enthusiasts and even Cebu Bloggers posted this hoax in their wall. FaceCebu recommends, if you are not sure about something, then there's always Google - Search this something and find out what is true. Stay safe dear Earthlings!!!
