First it was limited to school children, then a School Teacher started doing it, then a Civil Engineer did it and now it has crossed all limits when a Computer Science Engineer did it.
People are falling prey to a hoax that the founder of Facebook has invented a system by which a FB user can type the word ‘BFF’ in the comment section and if the writing appears in Green, then this would mean that their Facebook account is secure. This is pure lame.
People believing this kind of viral shit are those who believe anything that appears in the Internet. These are the same people of democracy who choose our leaders.
According to a website, technave.com –
this (green text) is actually a Facebook feature called Text Delight which automatically animates green and red hands giving a high five when published. It also animates when you click on it. It does not mean that your Facebook account can be hacked or is secure.
However, there is some grain of truth to it as Text Delight may not work if you haven’t updated your Facebook app or Internet browser, so you would be less secure and easier to hack than those who have updated. But, even if Text Delight does work, it does not mean your Facebook account cannot be hacked, as this relies more on your security and privacy settings.
Dear People, how much amount to time and money do you have to spend before you Google about the authenticity of a Facebook post? To some extent, people could be misled, but how on earth Engineers can be misled? That too those Engineers who has studied Computer Science for 4 years?
Please, Google search a topic before believing, you all are Humans after all!
