Despite rumors on newsfeeds that claim all your private Facebook posts and messages are about to go public, it's not happening.

But what if it did? Face it, anything you put on Facebook is out there and you need to think before you post. Me, I think so much I overthink.

But there has to be a happy medium? Spontaneous posts without future embarrassment potential? Count to 10 before you post. It could be the new mantra! Procrastination is your friend. Facebook still has somewhat robust privacy options, but it's always good to play it safe anyway.

Snopes.com breaks it down for us and offers some reassurance that all your Facebook stuff isn't about to go public, but it wouldn't hurt to delete bad pictures and things your regret anyway for your own peace of mind. And remember: Breathe and count to 10 before you post. This too shall pass.

Here's the post you might have seen on your newsfeed claiming that posting it on your page somehow opts you out of the situation. But bottom line: It's not true and there's nothing to opt out of anyway.

Deadline tomorrow !!! Everything you’ve ever posted becomes public from tomorrow. Even messages that have been deleted or the photos not allowed. It costs nothing for a simple copy and paste, better safe than sorry. Channel 13 News talked about the change in Facebook’s privacy policy. I do not give Facebook or any entities associated with Facebook permission to use my pictures, information, messages or posts, both past and future. With this statement, I give notice to Facebook it is strictly forbidden to disclose, copy, distribute, or take any other action against me based on this profile and/or its contents. The content of this profile is private and confidential information. The violation of privacy can be punished by law (UCC 1-308- 1 1 308-103 and the Rome Statute). NOTE: Facebook is now a public entity. All members must post a note like this. If you prefer, you can copy and paste this version. If you do not publish a statement at least once it will be tactically allowing the use of your photos, as well as the information contained in the profile status updates. DO NOT SHARE. Copy and paste
