A scam making the rounds on Facebook indicating that user’s profile will be displayed in public is all but fake!
The scam note reads, “Facebook is now a public entity. All members must post a note like this. If you prefer, you can copy and paste this version”.
Another of the scam also notes that members can pay a certain fee to have their information made private.
Facebook says in its response: “Facebook is free and it always will be. The users own all of the content and information they post on Facebook. They can control how anything is shared through their privacy and application settings”.
