Facebook Freakout

When Facebook went down, a lot of people freaked out. They just couldn't handle the fact that something they relied on to communicate with was gone. Was it a conspiracy? Was it a hacker? Or, was it as some thought, the beginning of the end? Nope, it was just gone for a bit. Yet, mention that it'll cost $7.99 a month and they instantly say, "Well, I don't need it anyways". So, it's "essential when it's free, not necessary when they charge for it"? Got it. Let's Move on.


It's A Scam

This is just another one of those stupid scams. This particular scam preys on the fact that you'll be so outraged that you'll pass the meme along. At some point in the future that meme will turn into something else, or some little turd blossom somewhere will just snicker because they tricked people into thinking this is real.

My People Got Suckered

I am still amazed by how many completely sane folks that I've grown up with, went to school with, or am related to, pass this stuff along. They usually embrace that "can't harm" to pass it along bit. I guess you missed the fact that if it is a scam, it CAN HARM or at least put some annoying content on your feed at some point in the future.

And In Conclusion...

Let's say this all aloud, and all together, "FACEBOOK IS NOT CHARGING YOU AND THEY DO HAVE THE RIGHT TO USE ALL THE PICTURES YOU POST FOR ANY REASON THEY WANT".  I'm glad we have this settled. Until next time, and there will be a next time, never pass along or repost anything that asks you to pass it along or repost.
