It’s Not True — Why Your Private Facebook Posts Are Not Going Public
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.
