F/b supermoon over Greece
« on: Thursday, 01 February, 2018 @ 11:23:42 »
Facebook didn't catch fake 'supermoon' video as it racked up 16 million views

A Facebook Live video purportedly showing a live view of a "supermoon" over Greece but which in fact was a still image with wind sounds added was viewed more than 16 million times over four hours on Wednesday, apparently going undetected by the company even as some commenters pointed out that something fishy was going on.

The stream featured a nine-year-old still picture of the moon over the Temple of Poseidon in the south of Greece. The image was overlaid with a current timestamp and the sound of wind was added in an attempt to make it seem live.
