Due to the new Graph App
anyone on Facebook can see your profile
Yet another Facebook hoax circulating – Due to the new Graph App anyone on Facebook can see your profile… This is just another of the old “stay PRIVATELY connected” hoaxes with a new intro to try fool more people into making unwise changes to their Facebook settings. If you see any of your friends posting this on their Facebook status – warn them that it’s just another hoax and advise them to stop posting it. (If you’d like to keep up with the Facebook hoaxes – in addition to Snopes – I just found this pretty cool Facebook page Facecrooks. I recommend you ‘Like’ it. (I shall continue to post about the hoaxes on my page as well)!
Here’s the hoax to IGNORE……
Due to the new Graph App anyone on Facebook can see your profile
“WARNING!!! +++++WARNING!!!+++++++WARNING!!!++++++++WARNING!!! Due to the new Graph App anyone on Facebook can see your profile… FACEBOOK HAS CHANGED THEIR PRIVACY SETTINGS ONCE MORE!!! DUE TO THE NEW “GRAPH APP” ANYONE ON FACEBOOK (INCLUDING OTHER COUNTRIES) CAN SEE YOUR PICTURES, LIKES, AND COMMENTS. The next 2 weeks I will post this, and please once you have done it please post DONE! Those of you who do not keep my information from going out to the public, I w…ill have to DELETE YOU! I want to stay PRIVATELY connected with you. I post shots of my family that I don’t want strangers to have access to!!! This happens when our friends click “like” or “comment”… automatically, their friends would see our posts too. Unfortunately, we cannot change this setting by ourselves because Facebook has configured it that way. PLEASE place your mouse over my name above (DO NOT CLICK), a window will appear, now move the mouse on “FRIENDS” (also without clicking), then down to “Settings”, click here and a list will appear. REMOVE the CHECK MARK on “LIFE EVENTS” and “COMMENTS & LIKES.” By doing this, my activity among my friends and family will no longer become public. Now, copy and paste this on your wall. Once I see this posted on your page, I will do the same. Thank you”
So, when you see a post that says Due to the new Graph App anyone on Facebook can see your profile share this blog post with them! I make it a point to Google any type of warnings that I see like this posted on Facebook. These warnings as well as the plain old outrageous stories that you regularly see people posting. I’m going to make a point of publishing a blog post about each and every one of them – so check here next time!
