There’s a picture that has been shared into my Facebook newsfeeds and each time I see it, I *facepalm* and wonder where common sense went. It clearly took a vacation and said “I’m on a break” from society at large.
This OBVIOUSLY photoshopped picture of Bill Gates holding up a sign promising everyone $5,000 if they shared the pic has over 46,000 shares. And is growing by the second.
I have a couple of questions for the people who’ve shared this picture.
1. FORWHYTHEHELLCOME would William Gates spend his fortune on your random ass sitting at home?
b. Why don’t you realize this picture has been altered digitally?
iii. When in the history of ALL the internet has a picture or email saying “share this and you will get money” ever come through?
4a. WHY THE HELL WOULD BILL GATES GIVE YOUR RANDOM ASS $5,000 FOR HITTING A RAGGELLY BUTTON???
Are there NO other issues that Bill would care about besides “Lemme fund the people who use Facebook?” THERE ARE! And he’s already doing it with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. This stupid sign talmbout “It’s about time I give back to the people!” ain’t e’em close to making sense.
And those people he’d give back to ain’t YOU! Go use your tax time refund check to buy all the clothes and video games you want. Bill ain’t funding that. This feels pretty obvious and everyone should know it.
Y’all gotta start applying logic and reasoning to the things you do online. In THIS case, using past history and lessons from similar situations to govern yourself accordingly so you don’t look like Booboo the fool. It’s like the time when I had to write a post telling people that contrary to ALL the status messages they were seeing, Facebook is NOT charging people for the service.
I feel like the Paul Revere of social media common sense.
Have y’all seen this pic in your newsfeeds? Can you drop this post link to the next person who shares it? Tell a friend to tell a friend to stop falling for the random hype and for every photoshopped picture on Facebook. Also, tell them to go have a seat. \__
