I know I don’t really have a leg to stand on today with regards to being accurate on the Internet (earlier today I lamented on Facebook about our temping leftover “upcakes”), but this kind of needs to be said:
If a pic or an infographic comes around on Facebook or Twitter and it just so perfectly and conveniently supports your point of view that you feel you just HAVE to post it, take a moment.
Do some fact checking.
Run it through snopes.com.
And then, if the facts appear to be correct, post it. If not, then please, please don’t.
Because if it’s too good to be true, it probably is. And posting stuff that isn’t true makes you look like a silly head.
Also, proofread. Because posting about “upcakes” will also make you look like a silly head.
Unless, of course, you are referring to this UK baker who apparently makes hypoallergenic treats.
