Does posting this privacy warning on Facebook protect your content from being used by anyone else?

Ok this is a downright epidemic, It seems like everyone is posting this thing lately.

Now this really sets off my BS detector. My instinct is that anything you post on facebook is public and can be used accordingly. Facebook can sell your information to advertisers, and they can also use your pictures and such as they want, although for the sake of goodwill they probably won’t. I don’t see how posting this warning can change all that. I have no legal basis for this, but for the sake of fighting ignorance I’d like to know for sure. Is anyone familiar with Facebook’s TOS?

Snopes is already on it. Short answer: No.

Excellent. That’s all I needed, thanks. I knew I should check Snopes more.

In addition, I’m not sure if it’s covered in Snopes, but referencing UCC rather than actual Penal code, and the whole “rights reserved without prejudice” thing is a red flag for Sovereign Citizen garbage, which is dumb at best and downright dangerous at worst.

Previous thread on the same subject.

It is pretty much as ffective as all the other mass posts about religion, breast cancer, politics, etc.

I do think it is a useful tool to identify the gullible people on my friends list.

In days of old when bandits bold roamed the seven seas (1980’s and 1990’s, lol), dial-up BBS’s often had a disclaimer that law enforcement officers were not permitted to login. I was under the impression that such a clause provided no defense if police decided to login anyway and they found Probable Cause to make an arrest, get a warrant, etc.

Ever receive a fax or email and you are not the intended recipient and there is a warning about how you must destroy it, etc?

I always send it back to the sender with numerous recipients in the carbon copy line.

I’ve yet to be prosecuted.
