After seeing most of my Facebook mini feed blown up with copy and pasted statuses about privacy laws, I decided to do some of my own research. I found a useful article on Forbes that explains the truth behind Facebook’s new regulations. As expected, it explains that the status is useless in protecting us from the privacy laws of Facebook. The article argues that people posting status like this shows that users are untrusting of Facebook in general. After thinking about it, I guess I am. I try to keep my Facebook appropriate so that it won’t infringe on future jobs or internships or cause a fight with a family member, but maybe having a Facebook in general is the real issue. While I do not think I can live without my Facebook, I do sometimes wish it did not exist at all.
