Is the stuff in the status really legally enforceable?

(3 Posts)

Just had a friend post this (it's a bit long and tedious). My question is just becuase it has the word 'herein' does it stand as a legally binding or effective warning. I.e. could you, in reality, act upon and have a cat in hell's chance of winning? Also surely FB's Ts&Cs cover this and you're agreeing to it when you sign up? Anyway, here goes...

I'm afraid not, according to Snopes. Once you accept FB policies you cannot get out of it simplly by posting this notice.

Thanks!
