A picture posted on Facebook has gone viral — but that was its intended purpose.
On Tuesday, Kira Hudson’s mom posted the above picture to her Facebook page asking her friends to share it.
The picture shows a young girl holding a piece of paper that says “Mom is trying to show me how many people can see a picture once it’s on the internet.”
Later that day, the picture was re-posted to the page “Southern mama” and it gain internet fame.
As of earlier today the picture was shared 54,637 times, which obviously proves the point. A viral picture you may regret later can spread beyond your control pretty quickly.
But there was another lesson Kira’s mom didn’t see coming.
One commenter wrote:
“Mom’s right! I’m a mom too but I don’t know your mom and have never seen this page before today. I received this from a friend of a friend. In less than 10 minutes I was able to figure out your name, Mom’s name, where you go to high school, where you live, your aunt who lives one state away from, your aunt/uncle/cousins in a northern state, and your grandmother one state away but not the same state as your aunt, and one of your baby pics. Kinda scary huh? Mom might want to know I was able to get the daughters information because of the information found on this page together with Mom’s page. Might want to tighten up the privacy features.”
