Facebook is the most popular social media site today. In fact, if you meet someone, chances are high that you will not separate without asking the other person his or her FB account, so you can add him or her to your Facebook friend list. The only downsize with social media site like FB is risking your privacy.
There have been several cases of scandal and controversial posts in Facebook that are meant to be private but have leaked to the public. These FB controversies include nude photos and indecent videos that are meant to be private. Unfortunately, their Facebook account was hacked and their private posts became a threat.
In other cases, some Facebook Users are blackmailed by their exes on FB after an ugly break up. Others are blackmailed by strangers for monetary purposes. Sharing posts on Facebook is very easy and in one click, one’s reputation is at stake.
For years, there are posts making a wave on Facebook that at one time, all your FB posts will be public, unless you copy and paste a certain message and post it on your wall. To make the matter worse, it gives Facebook users a timeline when they should share the said post, otherwise, all their posts will be public and that means goodbye privacy.
However, per Inquisitr, this Facebook post is bogus. Copying and pasting a certain post and sharing it on your FB wall don’t guarantee safety. Your account will always be at risk and you should never put any controversial and indecent posts on your Facebook account, regardless of the privacy setting.
When you open your Facebook account in a public internet cafe, you risk yourself. When you leave your laptop in public while your FB account is online to chit chat with your friend, you risk yourself. So be a responsible Facebook user. You can also filter Facebook hoax reports in the setting.
Aside from keeping yourself away from those deceitful copy-and-paste Facebook posts, you should also be conscious of what you read on the site. There is a number of celebrity death hoax on FB that are wrongly shared a thousand times. Be a responsible Facebook user and don’t share wrong and deceitful posts. Most of all make it a rule to never put anything on your FB account that you don’t want the public to know.
