I can’t believe how many smart people fell for that really dumb Facebook hoax on Monday.
I just wanna take a moment to sit back and laugh at all the poor schmucks who fell for this thing yesterday:
Come on people. You gotta be better than that. Here’s a pro-tip for all people using Facebook – nothing is private. Ever. Doesn’t matter how many privacy settings you’ve got or how many people you’re friends with. Just assume that everything you put on Facebook will be accessible to every person who has ever lived for the rest of time. Oh yea, and lots of those “friends” aren’t really your friends. They just wanna watch your marriage go up in flames from the privacy of their own home.
I mean, no offense but I don’t know how anyone who has survived this long without being eaten by wolves can repost something like this and think it’s going to protect them from anything. You know who you should talk to about intellectual property law? A lawyer. That might be a good start. Here’s an idea if you wanna keep something private – don’t write it on the Internet. Boom. Privacy solved.
Look, I genuinely felt bad for the people who were sharing this message the other day. A lot of them were people I respect and think highly of, and there were a LOT of them. This is how Nigerian princes steal all your money people. Because you see something on the Internet and assume it’s true. It’s the same reason so many people believed that West Boylston Mom who was lying about her son helping out the special needs student who soiled himself. So yea, if you were one of those people why don’t you take a lap around the building and think about how you’ve embarrassed your friends and family. Next time you wanna clarify if something is real or not, come see Turtleboy. We’ll clear it up for you.
