A bogus Facebook copyright message claiming to protect your posts, profile, and pics is making the rounds on Facebook again. And it's still a hoax.The phony message claims to put copyright protections on your posts and pictures as long as you share the comment in a status update.

It typically says something like this:

 Better safe than sorry is right. Channel 13 News was just talking about this change in Facebook's privacy policy. Better safe than sorry. As of January 3rd, 2015 at 11:43 a.m. Eastern 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 If you do not publish a statement at least once it will be tactically allowing the use of your photos, as well as the information contained in the profile status updates.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.

You understand that by using Facebook to post this bogus privacy statement that you have already agreed to Facebook's real Privacy Policy and the status update won't change anything, right? It's just a hoax.

If you really want to adjust your privacy settings, you can do it anytime within Facebook settings.

Or, if you want to be really private, delete your Facebook account. It's the only way to be sure.
