Everyone’s hilariously pissed at this phony ‘Facebook Nostradamus’
Pablo Reyes (who, by the way, is allegedly involved in one of those websites “that tricks people into sharing fake stories on social media“) was trolling, and his trick wasn’t all that complicated. If you click the top right arrow in that post and view its edit history, you can see that he wrote it on June 12 and later changed the date to make himself appear wildly prescient.
So far, so what? Dude found a way to blow a few hundred thousand gullible people’s minds, then got revealed for the huckster he is. I’d consider this case closed, except people got so amazingly mad about it.
Incredibly, that last post then became its own copypasta, with various users and pages sharing the exact same message of annoyed superiority.
Other people were just plain old pissed. And it kind of ruled.
And through it all, some people still managed to believe.
In the end, however, the only real prophet was this guy, who accurately predicted Reyes’ own post… OR DID HE?
