Dogs saved from being put down by cutest Facebook photo ever

Posted on July 23, 2015

Facebook is awash with photos of people’s dogs. You’d be forgiven for thinking that Facebook’s membership was 50% canine and 50% child judging by the profile photos of some of its members. That being said, one doggie-related Facebook photo this week was so adorable, it managed to save the lives of the two dogs.

Dogs Kala and Keira, residents of an Atlanta-based pet shelter, were scheduled to be put to sleep because nobody could found to house them. Staff at the pet shelter took to Facebook in one last, desperate, plea to save their lives – with perhaps the most tear-jerking photo you’ve ever seen. The two dogs were pictured behind bars, while one was seen to be ‘hugging’ the other.

The photo was accompanied by the description:

“Today is their last day unless we can save them.

“This is as urgent as urgent can get. We really don’t have time to spare. We have no fosters available. Animals in need have overwhelmed us recently and we must have someone today apply to foster.”

As if this wasn’t enough, the Facebook post went on to mention a plea ‘in the dogs own words’. Warning, if you’re of a sensitive disposition you may want to skip this part:

“I’m Kala. This is Keira. We’re so scared in here. The people working in the shelters see how scared we are but just told each other that today is our deadline. We have to have someone rescue us or we’ll be “next.” Keira is black and not a “real boxer,” just a mix. She’s so brave and tells me it will be okay no matter what happens. She tells me to be brave too but I don’t know if I can be. Can you see our faces. Keira knows what will happen. You can see it in her eyes. She’s putting on a brave face for sure but I can feel her heart beating fast while I’m clinging to her. If no one saves us, someone will take her away from me. I’ll see her as she goes down the hallway. She won’t come back and I’ll cry. They’ll come for me next and I won’t be as brave.”

Needless to say the plea worked, and both dogs were rescued within a matter of hours when a man came to adopt them.

This story has a happy ending for both dogs, and also for Facebook as it serves to show just how powerful social media can be when used correctly.

How to con people on Facebook: A step-by-step guide

Posted on June 10, 2015

Facebook, as we all know, is full of idiots. It’s seen as the ‘safe’ internet, where people who don’t really use the internet go to do whatever it is they think people on the internet do. As a result, these people are very naïve in the ways of the web, and are a soft touch for internet scammers.

I am not an internet scammer, though I will admit it has a certain appeal as it is rather like shooting fish in a barrel. I do, however, have a number of people on my Facebook who are, shall we say, asking for someone to take away their money. Barely a day passes when I don’t see them falling for hoaxes so, in an effort to educate everyone more than to encourage the practice, here’s how you scam someone on Facebook – and what to watch for so (more…)
