Yesterday I saw it, today I saw it again. Ok, enough. I can’t see my fellow Mauritians liking and sharing this stuff anymore.
Do you recognize the below picture from your facebook feeds?
Oh, come on! Folks, did you really believe Bill Gates is giving away his money for facebook likes? He is a philanthropist, which is good, but he is not a dumbass to be dying for likes and shares on social networks.
Don’t believe me? Okies, the above photo was posted on 9 May 2014 and since then it was shared over 500,000 times and enjoys over 20,000 likes.
Let’s dig the Internet. According to my few clicks on Google, this image was originally posted on Reddit’s AMA (Ask Me Anything) a year ago. Artists, comedians, or any popular figure that participates in Reddit’s AMA, usually attach a picture of themselves with a Reddit message. This picture initially conveyed Bill’s “Hi” to the Reddit audience.
Since then, however, the photo was edited for various trolls across the web, including the one many have liked and shared on facebook. On this note my dear friends, happy trolling!
