Facebook Weekly Highlights features photos and videos posted to the social network by celebrities and athletes. This week’s edition featured the photo atop the post of Jimmy Fallon in the buildup to his debut as host of NBC’s “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
After Nolan Daniels posted a photo of himself holding a Photoshopped winning lottery ticket, offering to give some of the riches to one person who shared the picture, more than 2 million people on Facebook bought into a hoax. While it was primarily a social experiment, Daniels wrote on The Huffington Post that he’s now trying to use this power for good.
As we learned earlier with the ubiquitous “In response to the new Facebook guidelines” posts, Facebook users will share just about anything — especially if they’ve got a shot at $1 million. Recently, a Facebook user named Nolan Daniels posted a photo of himself with the $587.5 million-winning Powerball ticket, with the caption, “Looks like I won’t be going to work EVER!!!! Share this photo and I will give a random person 1 million dollars!” More than 500,000 people have shared the photo. One problem, though: the ticket isn’t real.
