It feels like every year, another viral post goes around on Facebook warning users that everything is going public and that somehow you can stop it from happening. This time around, the post explains that all your private photos, messages, and more are about to become public, unless you post a disclaimer that says otherwise.
The post reads as follows:
However, none of this is true. Facebook isn't making everything public (some of it probably already is due to your privacy settings) and no matter what you do, Facebook is free to do whatever it wants with the information on your profile. See, when you sign up for Facebook, you agree to the company's Terms of Service and you can't alter that with a Facebook post.
If you are concerned about what's on your profile, we recommend doing a privacy checkup on your account and limiting what you post on social media. In the meantime, don't reshare this post — or delete it if you already have.
