Beware of what you put on Facebook...

If you've been on Facebook this week, you may have seen a status update now making the rounds, claiming to protect your privacy. Sounds great, but for one thing: It's total BS!

Here's the "disclaimer" floating around...

PRIVACY NOTICE: Warning - any person and/or institution and/or Agent and/or Agency of any governmental structure including but not limited to the United States Federal Government also using or monitoring/using this website or any of its associated websites, you do NOT have my permission to utilize any of my profile information nor any of the content contained herein including, but not limited to my photos, and/or the comments made about my photos or any other "picture" art posted on my profile.

You are hereby notified that you are strictly prohibited from disclosing, copying, distributing, disseminating, or taking any other action against me with regard to this profile and the contents herein.

The foregoing prohibitions also apply to your employee, agent, student or any personnel under your direction or control. The contents of this profile are private and legally privileged and confidential information, and the violation of my personal privacy is punishable by law. UCC 1-103 1-308 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED WITHOUT PREJUDICE

Nice try, but what you post on Facebook is total fair game if your profile is public.

Facebook's Terms of Use and Data Use Policy govern your content. You 'agree' to them by using Facebook's services. Making a post saying that you don't isn't legal magic that will change this fact.

So at the end of the day.... there's no privacy, so don't post anything you don't want the whole world to see!
