Despite so many awareness about Facebook hoaxes, online users fall for them and make them viral.
One such viral post is circulating on Facebook that suggests everything that you have ever posted on the social media platform will become public tomorrow.
Don't worry — it's a hoax. Yes, it's still a hoax.

Let me tell you one thing: the social media giant has made no such announcement; rather it has been made by one of you and people are spreading this all over Facebook.

Similar Facebook privacy notice hoax was circulated on the social network a few months back, and it's making the rounds again.
At that time in June, Facebook issued the following statement about this hoax:
"You may have seen a post telling you to copy and paste a notice to retain control over things you share on Facebook. Don't believe it. Our terms say clearly: You own all of the content and information you post on Facebook, and you can control how it's shared through your privacy and application settings. That's how it works, and this hasn't changed."If you are concerned about your privacy on Facebook, the company provides settings that limit strangers, and of course the company itself, from accessing your posts, photos or content.
