After further examination of the legal terms of Facebook, I’m reconsidering the things I post on Facebook. I believe there’s nothing wrong with posting your opinions or pictures, as long as it’s not harming or threatening someone. Facebook goes into fully-detailed terms of agreement in a compartmentalized, bulletin format for users to observe and comply with. I believe it’s very interesting that Facebook’s very first main point is “Privacy”, and the very first thing they say about it is: “Your privacy is very important to us.” Thousands, maybe even millions of people have had the misconceived notion that Facebook is taking away our privacy rights. I’ve come to the conclusion that everyone who uses Facebook is responsible for their own privacy rights, and any private information that is publicized is at the fault of the person who posted it. This comes to no surprise to me, however, it does imply that we should heed the words of caution and how Facebook is used. It is possible for questionable and illegal activities to occur on Facebook, but it really is other user’s responsibility to report individuals who participate in any illegal, online acts. Facebook’s terms of service sound more like guidelines, but they did state at the end that anything that their terms are in full effect and legal. They state who the laws apply to and how it can have consequential effects. They don’t go into explicit details as to what the consequences are since every situation is different, but they do state that certain violations will require certain actions to take place such as deactivating or deleting one’s account over something that completely goes against Facebook’s standards. I personally am not scared or intimidated by these rules since I don’t post statuses, pictures or videos that aren’t in compliance with Facebook’s terms, but I am more aware as to what can happen. I recommend that everybody checks out Facebook’s terms of service just to become more familiar with it. That way, you’ll have a surety as to what to expect and how to behave on a worldwide social network such as Facebook.
