- Tram Ho
In recent days, on social networking site Facebook has been flooded with content of articles shared by many people titled “Official announcement sent from Facebook”. This is “a trick”, but not a new phenomenon.
Specifically, the content in the photos that people passed to each other over the past few days is as follows:
“The trick” on social networks.
Many Vietnamese Facebook users are gentle and gullible, quickly copy the above information without fully understanding where the content originated from and re-post this status line on their personal pages. This inadvertently makes the speed of the “trick” spread rapidly. Not to mention, the title on the first line says: “VTV1 ALSO SAID IT THEN EVERYONE IS TAKING” to make everyone believe it is true, even though it is not known whether VTV1 has reported this information or not. .
In fact, VTV itself also spoke about this information and confirmed it was fake news.
The “trick” announcement on Facebook is not a new event either. The Guardian News of the UK has published an article warning users from … October 2016 and is now spreading every year. Many other international newspapers that same year identified the above announcement as fake.
A Gardian post from 2016 titled: “No, Facebook won’t make all your private photos public tomorrow.”
Considering what makes the content convincing, the author of this “trick” cited a number of Rome laws and regulations, based on the protection of users against Facebook’s unauthorized use of images. . However, “Sanctions for violating privacy under the UCC Act” (UCC is “Uniform Commercial Code”, ie, US Commercial Law). This law applies in the US territory and will not come into force in Vietnam. And the excerpt “1-308-1 1 308-103” is just the beginning of the Commercial Law. In addition, the Rome statute is the legal framework established by the International Criminal Court responsible for the most serious crimes such as genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and aggression. , not related to piracy and privacy on cyberspace.
The key to leading users to share on your personal page is as follows:
The last paragraph of fake content is rampant on Facebook.
The encouraging note reads: “All Facebook members must post a notice like this to avoid troubles later” . It is for this reason that the scam has attracted many people and is constantly spreading rapidly on Facebook in Vietnam.
And yet, you can find out about your privacy or personal information on Facebook’s Data Policy under the Privacy section in the settings. According to the content that Facebook has spoken out to warn users about these scams: “Anyone using Facebook has full ownership and control over the content and information they post, as stated. User may control how such content and information is shared. This has always been Facebook’s policy and always will be. “
Therefore, there will be no story that Facebook voluntarily shares personal information of users without permission. Before sharing the news you receive, you should check your account and source website for verification. If you can’t find the information easily, it could be “a trick”. And if the post, video or link looks suspicious – you better ignore it.
