Fake Facebook Privacy Notice is Really Just Wishful Thinking

Facebook users are being encouraged to post a supposed Facebook Privacy Notice to protect the privacy of data they have posted on Facebook. According to the fake notice "The contents of this profile are private and legally privileged and confidential information, and the violation of my personal privacy is punishable by law." Unfortunately the opposite is true. Your Facebook data is subject to the Facebook Privacy and Terms of Use agreements you accepted when you joined the social network. Facebook continues to modify these agreements to increase the amount of personal data it collects from users and expand the ways in which this information is used.
