Don't believe everything you see on the internet

 A few days ago a photo went viral on the social network Twitter accusing McDonalds treating groups of people unfairly. However what many people did not pay attention to is that the photo was a hoax and they were spreading it. At the rate the photo was spreading hundreds of people must have thought the photo was true causing a large PR issue for the Mcdonalds team.

 Now we all need to remember to research before we spread. A small spread of false information can really hurt someone else. Not everything we see on the internet is true so research is always the best place to start.
