I have a post appearing in my news feed right now, asking: “You have 30 minutes to spend $10,000 in one store. Where are you going?” Or, “What was your first car?” On the surface, these are boring questions, yet FB indicates it has had 1.8 million comments added.

A fake social media propaganda meme has circulated saying a House Bill will require the mandatory separation of family members if one tests positive for Covid-19. The meme is fake but many people believed what they read or heard. Yesterday I witnessed this first hand as a middle aged woman broke down and cried, fearing the government would separate her from her elderly mother, for whom she is the primary care giver. This is the awful impact of garbage posts on social media.
