Don't believe everything you read on the Internet. And definitely don't believe everything you read on Facebook! Here's a few of the latest hoaxes to float around on social media:
Keep Facebook from owning your photos (with legal mumbo-jumbo)!
This hoax has made a revival as of the new year, but it’s actually a few years old. Due to a “policy change,” Facebook is (supposedly) claiming ownership of everything you’ve ever posted to the site, including all photos. However, you can exempt yourself from this policy change by copy/pasting a wall of legal jargon to your Facebook page.
The problem is, there hasn’t been a policy change. Back in 2012, when this hoax first made the rounds, Facebook clarified that it hadn’t claimed copyright over anything, photos or otherwise.
Even if this hoax were true, that wall of text your friends are posting still wouldn’t do anything. Signing up for Facebook means accepting their terms of service – and you can’t just change that by posting something saying you don’t agree after the fact.
