Here’s why Facebook UCC 1-308 is a hoax
Well this isn’t the first time this hoax has surfaced. It has many times in the past had surfaced and the same reaction was observed earlier too. And at that time Facebook had issued an update that it is a hoax and here’s the link to the update. Facebook’s privacy policies clearly mention that you are the owner of the content and Facebook doesn’t you it without your permission, if it intends to do so, it cannot without your permission.
And if you read the post carefully, it mentions Rome Statue. Well take some time and read what Rome Statue is. It is a treaty that established the ICC (not Cricket) – International Criminal Court. It establishes four core international crimes: genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and the crime of aggression. And it is clear that the Rome Statues has t got anything to do with your privacy, my privacy or In fact anyone’s privacy.
Lastly if you still got any doubts, head to Facebook FAQ section and read for yourself the consequences that you will face if you don’t prohibit Facebook from sharing your photos and posts**
Still wondering what Bhed Chaal is ? Well it’s nothing but following someone blindly without applying your own thoughts to what he/she is saying. So don’t be a bhed and do bhed chaal, be wise, stay wise !
