A viral post is circulating on Facebook that says everything users have ever posted - including deleted pictures and private messages - will become public on Tuesday.

According to the post, Facebook users must share the message to keep the website from sharing their public information.

Don't believe it. It's a hoax.

The widely shared post generally looks something like this:

The full text reads:

“Deadline tomorrow !!! Everything you've ever posted becomes public from tomorrow. Even messages that have been deleted or the photos not allowed. It costs nothing for a simple copy and paste, better safe than sorry. Channel 13 News talked about the change in Facebook's privacy policy. I do not give Facebook or any entities associated with Facebook permission to use my pictures, information, messages or posts, both past and future. With this statement, I give notice to Facebook it is strictly forbidden to disclose, copy, distribute, or take any other action against me based on this profile and/or its contents. The content of this profile is private and confidential information. The violation of privacy can be punished by law (UCC 1-308- 1 1 308-103 and the Rome Statute). NOTE: Facebook is now a public entity. All members must post a note like this. If you prefer, you can copy and paste this version. If you do not publish a statement at least once it will be tactically allowing the use of your photos, as well as the information contained in the profile status updates. DO NOT SHARE. Copy and paste”

This hoax can be traced back to 2012, and it's resurfaced several times in the years since.

While it won't hurt users to share the post, it won't protect their content.

Facebook asks that anyone who sees the post report it as spam.

Make sure to share with your friends and family!
