“Beware What You Share” a Warning from a Quad Cities Meteorologist
Boy isn't technology great? We can get the answers to any question on a moments notice by just typing a question into the Poptart sized computer in our pocket.
And boy isn't social media great? We can connect with family & friends and folks from high school even though if you saw them in real life you'd bury your face under your hat and/or mask and not make eye contact as you walk by.
Have you seen the "26.2" OF SNOW NEXT WEEKEND" post? You may have seen it and you may have shared it and we all need to shame you if you did.
Meteorologist Andrew Stutzky from WQAD says "Not so fast! Beware what you share this time of year. Here's why."
This goes for any "fake news" on the internet. If you click "share" or "forward" you deserve to have your account suspended and a scarlet D stamped on your profile pick for "Dumbass".
There's enough real life garbage to sift through on social media. We don't need your made up garbage to check into like a part time Columbo.
Recently I did a search on my email for something my dad had sent me and realized how much spam he forwarded to me. Do yourself a favor and search for "fwd" and go back as far back as you can.
Here are a sample of real subject lines in my email box from 2010-2012
Fw: Fwd: How's This For Nostalgia?
Fw: Fw: Blonde jokes
Fw: Fw: If You Delete This Take Me Off Your Mail List
Fw: Fw: 21 year old that get's it!
If someone sent you this today...you'd be pissed and assume it was a virus. Can we please do the same for the crap people forward on social media?
