5 Things you Didn't Know about Facebook's Privacy Policy

I'm sure everyone has seen that viral Facebook post people have been sharing, trying to protect their content from Facebook and copyright all their information. The reality about sharing this post is that it actually does nothing, you've already agreed to Facebook's privacy policy when you signed up to become a member. Surprisingly, 52% of Americans actually do not know what a privacy policy even is. Even more surprising, 56% of Americans believe that a privacy policy makes sure that each users information is entirely confidential which is just plain untrue. 

A true privacy policy is a set of rules a company has created to determine how it will take users data and use or share it. More often than not, these privacy policies contain fine print and diffcult language that will often leave the users information more public than private.

Some of the information about Facebook's privacy policy may come as a surprise. Here are 5 things you didn't know about Facebook's privacy policy.

We've all been there, the bars close up shop, you're ready to call it a good night out but first; you're hungry!

Salads On the GO


Lettuce Chat:

We've all heard of the freshman fiften or in my case it is the junior five. We all do everything in our power to avoid it, starting off the school year eating as health as we can. Eventually though we get busy! We either skip a meal all together or we grab some sort of fast food. I have consumed more Chipotle in the past month in the probably did all summer long. It's just easy and oh so good. BUT what if we could have a meal that is easy to pack and delicious? SALADS!!! 

Now bare with me, I know you probably think I am crazy for saying that. Most people think of salads to be boring or just too healthy to possibly be good. You might even think people only eat salads when they want to diet. But I am here to tell you that you are WRONG. Salads are so quick and easy to make, easy to pack, and so tasty that you won't even realize that you are eating healthy. So glab your tupperware and less pack a lunch so we can stop being hangry.
