Facebook Privacy Warning

5 Jun

Irony defined, 2012: When the same Facebook friends who are posting details of everything from their dog’s last BM to the state of their toe jam suddenly start frantically posting about FACEBOOK IS TRYING TO STEAL YOUR PRIVACY AND YOUR IMMORTAL SOUL!!!

That is completely true, of course. Zuckerberg is in fact, the devil. He was going to play him in the Social Network, but Jesse Eisenburg beat him in a fiddle contest to win the role.

Anyway, the latest Facebook trend is to post a “PRIVACY NOTICE” as your status, because apparently then that will protect all the personal information you are recklessly sharing with the internet.

Y’all, come on. Go to Snopes before you cut and paste. Look, right here, they explain why it doesn’t stop Satan/Zuckerberg/The Federal Government/Aliens from stealing your soul privacy.

If you want to cut-and-paste a status, at least make it a good one. Here, borrow mine:

Because if these things work, wouldn’t you rather have a unicorn and Shakespeare-citing puppy than your privacy?

    I think I’m now able to sue you for that “Devil Went Down to Georgia” earworm that I accidentally picked up on here.

      No, I just have to post “I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR EARWORMS. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED WITHOUT PREJUDICE.”

    Haha, as a lawyer, when I saw those disclaimers, I couldn’t help thinking how ridiculous they are.

    When did you read the post about my dog’s BM? That was supposed to be a private post. Have you been hacking into my FB account? You know, there are laws against that.
