♫Look all these rumors, surrounding me everyday. I just need some time, some time to get away from all these rumors, I can’t take it no more…♫
You know the rest of the words. I had to watch this video today after hearing on the news that Mark Zuckerberg was not giving away stock to a select group of Facebook subscribers. With the development of the internet, rumors spread like wild fire. Think about all of the celebrities that have died on Facebook this past year. The interesting thing is that whoever started this rumor gave it credibility by saying, “It’s not a hoax! It was on Good Morning America!” Yet thousands did not go to the Good Morning America website to verify it. Fortunately, this type of hoax didn’t cost anyone any money. Many of us were just doomed to read the same post over and over.
The next time you see a post that sounds too good to be true, think of the Time Social Club.
