Here's yet another case of 'don't believe everything you read on the internet'. 

For the past few weeks, many Northern Colorado residents have been copy and pasting a now-viral Facebook message claiming that Zuckerberg and his cronies will let loose your private information and posts for all to see.  The message, courtesy of 98.3 The Snake, looks like this:

Deadline tomorrow !!! Everything you’ve ever posted becomes public from tomorrow. Even messages that have been deleted or the photos not allowed. It costs nothing for a simple copy and paste, better safe than sorry. Channel 13 News talked about the change in Facebook’s privacy policy. I do not give Facebook or any entities associated with Facebook permission to use my pictures, information, messages or posts, both past and future. With 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 If you do not publish a statement at least once it will be tactically allowing the use of your photos, as well as the information contained in the profile status updates. DO NOT SHARE. Copy and paste

Hmm. Seems legit.

We're not exactly sure which 'Channel 13 News' they're referring to but as far as this hoax, it's just that-- a hoax.  Facebook technically does own all of your information when you sign up for an account but the company is not planning on sharing that information anytime soon-- in fact, you can read the fine print to be absolutely sure.

Again, don't believe everything you read on Facebook or on the internet-- except this, of course.
