I read an article where a gentleman took a picture of a power-ball ticket with the correct numbers for $588 million jackpot and posed as the lucky winner on a social networking site Facebook. He then added to the caption “Looks like I won’t be going to work Ever! He proceeded to ask that the photo be shared and he will give a random person 1 million dollars. Well, people actually thought it was real. The photo had over 450,000 comments. A few days later, the “real winner” came forward.  It was discovered the gentleman posing as the winner had the numbers out of sequence and it was fake.  It is sad that people use social networking site for the wrong reasons. I guess with everything in life, there are advantages and disadvantages. We just have to find a balance.
