More Fake and Real

Or this pair:

Which post about Latin American
heritage is from a fake page?

REAL PAGE

— OR —

— OR —

Number two is supposed to be the “fake” one but it’s actually slightly less stupid than the “real” one.

The whole idea that you can influence people or change their minds through FB posts is idiotic. People are drawn to whatever confirms their existing beliefs. Folks who are genuinely capable of changing their minds on important issues in adulthood (like me) are rare and definitely don’t do so under the influence of social media memes.
