In The Small Print

 

Dont forget tomorrow starts the new Facebook (aka...META) rule where they can use your photos. The deadline is today!!! 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 violation of privacy can be punished by law. 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 If you do not publish a statement at least once it will be tacitly allowing the use of your photos, as well as the information contained in the profile status updates. DO NOT SHARE. Copy and paste. Their new algorithm chooses the same few people - about 25 - who will read your posts. Therefore: Hold your finger down anywhere in this post and "copy" will pop up. Click "copy". Then go to your page, start a new post and put your finger anywhere in the blank field. "Paste" will pop up and click paste. This will bypass the system.

 

each time I read this disclaimer

on someones Facebook

I am reminded

 

how quickly we forget what we all agreed to

when we signed up

that Facebook owns everything we post

 

how quickly we forget what we all learned

when we signed up

that Facebook uses everything we post

 

how quickly we forget what we all read

over and over

that “Tomorrow” has come many times

 

its not the algorithm

that is silencing you

(Facebook makes its money

on our inter-relatability after all

silencing its users is counter-productive)

you, saying very little at all

have silenced yourself

the algorithm hardly knows you exist

suddenly waking up to you

on the rare instances that you speak
