FeedNewz.com is a Prank website, where ANYONE can create a prank about anything – and it looks like a real news report which is shared on Facebook. I believe these are supposed to be humorous but can be very worrying to some people especially the nature of some of these pranks.
Create your own prank
When you click on the link – according to reports, you are sent to a page where you are told YOU WERE PRANKED with a number showing how many people have been pranked. (I don’t think it autoshares but I will let you know if I find out)
Watch out for – PRANK site feednewz on Facebook
There are currently many many people who think its funny and have created pages about Ebola outbreaks in Manchester – Bournemouth – Eastbourne and many other places in Britain – Plus many other countries too.
So please don’t share these posts (although you ARE informed that they are fake when you click on them – many people will just share the link, without reading because “people don’t read any more“) and don’t worry about them, they are fake – if you want to make sure – go to google and search for the headline, if you don’t find something from a reputable news site, then you know its fake.
I’m surprised Facebook allow this behavior actually – I’m sure it was intended as harmless fun but these above stories shows that its gone past that now.
