Week end thoughts – Facebook privacy

Courtesy of Mashable

So for the pastr few days there is a privacy contorversy that has gone viral on Facebook. Aparently there is this notion that because FB is now a public companu your privacy is now suddenly gone public and anyone and everyone can have access to your privacy

Ok  STOP everyone, hold on just one minute. Internet privacy laws dont work that way. If FB has a privacy law , which it has , they cannot just suddenly change those laws without first informing you the member of the change . You can sue them if they do. Secondly posting a notice on your timeline about privacy has no effectt to the cause. The privacy laws of FB has not changed depite it is now a public company.  If you feel better to post the false proviso on your timeline  go ahead. But in reality it does not mean anything. Check the link below for more info on the matter. Have a good weekend all.  http://mashable.com/2012/06/05/facebook-privacy-notice-fake/?WT.mc_id=en_all_stories&utm_campaign=All%2BStories&utm_medium=email&utm_source=newsletter
