What world do we live in where I turn on my computer and it tells me that my dad ate a burrito for free from Taco Bell?
Lesson learned. If you are going to accept an offer through Facebook, be prepared for the world to find out. Especially if you have a son with a gazillion friends.
I do not remember ever giving Facebook or Taco Bell permission to share this information with anyone. I understand, however, that as a cost of joining the Facebook community I have probably agreed to concede many rights that allow them to share certain information. Is that not what fuels this Facebook community of information sharing? So what did I agree to let Taco Bell and Facebook do with this information?
Here is what Facebook and I so clearly negotiated and agreed upon in a meeting of the minds when we considered what rights they would have to share my acceptance of a BOGO offer from Taco Bell with others:
Who can see offers I’ve claimed?
When you claim an offer, a story about it will get added to your profile (timeline). By default, this story is visible to your friends, but you can change the audience of this story. To choose who can see that you've claimed an offer: On desktop:
- Click Friends next to Post offer to profile (timeline).
- Select the audience you want to share the story with. Choose Only Me if you don't want others to see that you claimed the offer.
- Click Okay.
Finally, if you want a reasonably priced and delicious Mexican salad, go to Chipotle.
