…..how the stupid and false memes and pictures get spread on social media.
I ran across this on Facebook. Names and pictures obscured to protect the innocent and the stupid.
Yes, the original person shared a picture with a false caption (without double checking it). I know this person, she’s a nice lady, but occasionally way too trusting of the internet.
The first commenter posts a link to the snopes page on the photo, and yes, the photo is NOT of a Himalayan flower, but infact of a sea creature. A very basic search proves that.
The next two commenters (and there has been a 3rd since I took this screenshot) completely ignore the snopes link.
Basic internet search guys. Its easy and quick. And saves you from looking stupid infront of the world.
