The facebook post looks something like this:


The next 2 weeks I will be posting this, and please, once you have done it, please post done! Those of you who do not keep my information from going out to the public, I will have to DELETE YOU! I want to stay PRIVATELY connected with you. I post shots of my family that I don’t want strangers to have access to!!! However, with the recent changes in Facebook, the “public” can now see activities on ANY wall. This happens when our friends click “like” or “comment”… automatically, their friends would see our posts too. Unfortunately, we cannot change this setting by ourselves because Facebook has configured it that way. PLEASE place your mouse over my name above (DO NOT CLICK), a window will appear, now move the mouse on “FRIENDS” (also without clicking), then down to “Settings”, click here and a list will appear. REMOVE the CHECK on “LIFE EVENTS” and “COMMENTS & LIKES”. By doing this, my activity among my friends and family will no longer become public. Now, copy and paste this on your wall. Once I see this posted on your page, I will do the same. Thank you



Do NOT follow the instructions and do not pass this settings post around it is FALSE.

The settings you would be having the user change is what allows them to see your information in their News Feed.  So “un-checking” all your options means they do NOT see anything from you in their “News Feed.”  They will still be able to contact you and everything else will be the same–they just will not get regular Facebook feeds from you.

Please do not do this and do not allow your friends to pass this information around.
