I used to do this regularly, but since I’ve not been blogging regularly, I’ve stopped, but today let’s talk about pop culture.
Facebook is still very popular despite it’s problems with fake news and lack of privacy, but one problem that still is a problem is fake pages. Celebrity fake pages and ministry fake pages. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had someone befriend me who claimed to be a well-known minister and the next thing you know they are asking you for money. I usually string them along and then let them have it! lol Then I report them to Facebook.
Yesterday a friend sent me a link to a fake page for entertainment mogul Tyler Perry. She was all excited because the post said that he was giving out $100.00 to the first hundred that followed his instructions. I don’t even remember what you were required to do, but I told my friend that it was fake and I had received something similar a while back. I think she was a little skeptical of me more than the fake post because she wanted the money. lol She kept saying that she was probably too late to receive the $100.00 and then she proceeded to post it to her Facebook page against my warning. Long story short the next day Tyler Perry posted this and asked people to share it and that’s why I posting this here. Don’t fall the scams!
Later, while I was paging through another social media site, I saw a picture of actress Lisa Raye and to my shock and dismay she has recently become engaged to a random stranger on a TV show called the Proposal. It comes on right behind the Bachelor, but I made up my mind that I would not watch it because I felt it made a mockery of marriage. What is the world coming to? That’s just my opinion!
