A rumor has gone viral on Facebook this week that the social network’s status as a publicly traded company is putting users’ privacy at risk. However, Facebook affirms that nothing has changed and users do not need to be concerned with threats on privacy. Wall Street Journal relates
“There is a ‘false rumor circulating to a small online population that Facebook is making a change related to users’ information or content they post to the site, a spokesman said in a statement.
"'To be clear — anyone who uses Facebook owns and controls the content and information they post, as stated in our terms ... ‘That is our policy, and it always has been.’”
