If You Read It on Facebook, It Must Be True
"There's a sucker born every minutes".  That's a phrase often credited to circus promoter PT Barnum.

Especially when they are shared from trustworthy friends.

These are the latest versions of forwarded emails that plagued email users before Facebook became so popular.

Did you hear the one about Pope Francis wearing a Black Sabbath shirt?

Or the one about KFC serving fried rat?

Both are FALSE of course.

But how do you know?

Before you "Share" or forward a post that may or not be true, check out first.
