Facebook Law for Idiots [VIDEO]
The hilariously demented minds at College Humor have done it once again! By now I'm sure at least a few of your friends and family have littered your Facebook news feed with the copied and pasted "I hereby, forthwith and forevermore give thee notice of thy intentions of blah, blah blah" nonsense. Are these people for real?
Well sadly they are and they actually think by copying and pasting some legal B.S. on their wall they somehow are now immune to the actual Facebook terms of service they agreed to when they signed up for an account.
What they fail to realize is that not only does this do nothing, it makes them look incredibly stupid. If you watched the video above then you know there's no denying it!
Here's the latest legal jargon that's clogging up your feed: "As of January 4th, 2015 at 11:13pm. Central standard time, I do not give Facebook or any entities associated with Facebook permission to use my pictures, information, or posts, both past and future. By 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 If you do not publish a statement at least once it will be tactically allowing the use of your photos, as well as the information contained in the profile status updates.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. You MUST copy and paste. Will post an additional copy in comments as well so it's easier for you to copy & paste."
Again you can copy and paste all you want but the only thing that's actually legal and binding are the Facebook terms of service you agreed to at the beginning. Now go back to posting selfies, pictures of your food and bitching about others...
