Beware of Fake Posts in Facebook

Image
You've probably noticed this post on facebook. "A 14 years old boy got beaten half dead by his stepfather. His only fault was this that he tried to protect his little sister from being raped. Now he's struggling for his life, but doctors say he won't make it without a surgery. His mother doesn't have money to pay it. Facebook donates 45cents for every sharing or reposing." Facebook Web hacker,Paul Tarjan just informed me that This is Absolutely Fake News.Please don't spread anything which saying "Facebook donates for like and sharing posts" This is only an example. Same like posts are spreading through facebook and other social media communities . So always beware.
