I have joked about Facebook’s “similar to” programming not working quite correctly before, maybe they took my suggestion to heart, because today they nailed it and did my work for me.
What work? Why the never-ending task of trying to convince people to check their facts before blindly reposting information.
Today Facebook kindly offered me these suggested articles after a friend reposted an article about Johns Hopkins supposedly issuing a “cancer update”.
Of course the ALL CAPS should have been the first tip off of the fallacy of the original.
And in case you didn’t know, the meme about AAA’s Tipsy Tow service (free towing if you are intoxicated on New Year’s Eve) is only partially true, so you might want to think twice before reposting that one too.
